I think turtles are so cool, but I know nothing about them. I am constantly blocking traffic to get one out of the road. I found one in my yard that the next door brats had been tormenting, and it escaped from where they left it. It had gotten trapped in a vent against my house. It was hissing and seemed very ill tempered, but I got some welding gloves and pulled it from the vent. I put it in my fence, not really knowing what I was going to to do with it, so I called the county to ask if there was a pond I could release it by. They came out to get it since it was so large, about the size of a truck hubcap, and took it away to release it in a safe place. I also blocked 3 lanes of traffic in a busy area of Kansas City to rescue a big one from the road. My SO swears I am going to get run over one day getting animals out of the road.
