A turtle shell being inspected in firstday school
One of two Florida box turtles (Terrapene carolina bauri) I found in the creek near where the ditch enters.
The third snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina osceola) we’ve seen in the creek. This is a bit bigger than the last one we saw, but much smaller than the one we’ve been seeing further upstream. This was near where the ditch runs into the creek. This is the we’ve seen which wasn’t huddled as closely into its shell as it could manage. At the end it did go and bury itself in the sand.
