Aren’t turtles beautiful when you get close up and can see their markings? I love this one’s red trim on the shell.
Turtle! Funny how we don’t often associate turtles with farms and countryside, but I have seen many strolling out of ponds and hiding under tall grasses – usually the snapping variety, which I steer clear of. They have an attitude nothing like the little turtle I had years ago that I lovingly named Isadore. Sadly, a plastic bowl with a sharp-edged plastic palm tree sitting on top of a very warm television set is not the ideal environment. Let’s leave them in the ponds.
Love turtles! And I agree with Cindi: please leave them in the wild!
