I found this little guy in the backyard the other day. Box turtle I think. I put him in an old parmesan cheese bottle till the kids came home from school to see him, and then we let him go. He was TINY! In case you can’t tell, that blue thing is his water dish and it was a lid to a 20 oz bottle. See how little the turtle is in comparison to the lid? He was also very ready to leave when I opened the lid and let him out outside. LOL
I would have kept him but KC was paranoid of turtle germs. Hahaha….and yes, I washed my hands thoroughly after I picked him up and I didn’t let the kids touch him at all.
Then I snuck downstairs without the dogs to see if I could get a little closer pictures….that’s when they saw me, but they didn’t take off running like I expected. They were really skinny…you could see their ribs but they were still really pretty.
I think it was the same adult deer that were out there in May, (I posted about it here) but apparently a couple of them have reproduced since then…the babies were cute with their little spots…
