    Turtles Rock!

    Mind you they rock a bit slower than the rest of us, but they still rock nonetheless man!

    Eastern Box Turtles

     These little guys are always crossing the roads here in the summertime.  I try to give them a hand whenever I can but sadly many wind up roadkill. The picture of the one in my hand doesn't do him justice, they're really quite beautiful.

    Why Not

    Ya can't just let them sit there and get run over. Besides, now that I've seen the movie 'Over the Hedge' I feel obligated to help the little guys. Just watch out for the snapping ones unless you like losing fingers that is.

    Turtles Are Adorable!

    My husband, our kids and I were driving down a back road couple miles from our house. We live out in the country so we see all kinds of animals. I saw something in the road and I made my husband stop. It was a turtle. He got out and picked it up, he showed the girls the turtle...
