A Wee Baby
I recently wrote about a box turtle that we discovered. He somehow found his way into our garage. I put him outside where I hoped he would be safe from future mowing.
Today while working in the yard Lee saw a baby box turtle. It was the cutest wee thing. It was very hard to release THIS little guy into the wild. He looked too small and vulnerable to survive.
Box turtles lay about 6 eggs each time and I am hoping the siblings went to a safer place than our front lawn. They are not endangered, but they are considered threatened. We seem to have a good breeding spot for them, so maybe we should put the word out. No box turtle collecting here.
