Look what I found this morning....

On my way home from the rescue centre...

He was right in the middle of the road.

At first I thought it was an empty shell until I saw his head.






I think he is a midland painted turtle...

So anyway.. after lunch I am going to go release him at the stream behind my house..

Hopefully he isn't someones pet they dumped and he knows how to survive in the wild.

LOL. No.. thats the kitties old waterdish. Had to start using something sturdier after we got Cappy.

Once he heard the sound of the water by the creek, he came out of his shell and was trying to get to the water, so I think thats probably where he came from.

Thank you for stopping and saving this little guy! I am afraid many people would just run over the turtle. Perhaps "she" is trying to get to a place to lay her eggs, I do think that this is the time of year for that!

I think it was a male because he had a very long tail and logner front claws.. and I htink the males have longer tails and claws for breeding purposes.

But it may have been a girlie.
