Nature Walks – The Turtles Are Out

We have two kinds of turtles that live in our lakes. We have the bigger snapping turtles and we have the smaller red-eared sliders. When the sun is shining and the weather is warm, I see a lot of turtles out basking in the sun. When the skies are grey and the weather is cooler, they tend to stay “indoors” more.

The Snapping Turtles really look like something leftover from the prehistoric days.

Look. He’s smiling for the camera.

My turtles are saying it’s time to come out of your shells and enjoy the beautiful days ahead.
