Turtle Time

It’s been raining buckets due to the recent run of spring storms.  Times like this you can find critters trying to find a dry spot or get to higher ground.  And wouldn’t you know it, this fine day heading out the driveway to run an errand, there sits a box turtle meandering her way across the drive and up the hill.  What a wonderful sight and thanks to an Outreach Program I just finished up on Radical Reptiles, I know this little critter is a female box turtle.  She has brown eyes, the guys have red to orange eyes.  And, yes I had to pick her up and see that she has a flat belly.  Fellas have a dimple or slight curve underneath just below their hinge.  Who knew such a stormy day would turn out to be so bright!  You go girl!
