Eastern Box Turtle

 


Did you know that certain species of turtles eat mushrooms? That came as news to me yesterday as I happened across this Eastern Box Turtle (below) and did some research. She (you can tell by the color of their eyes) was apparently in the process of laying some eggs in the middle of this path (known to be trafficked by bicyclists as well as pedestrians). Bad idea, I think! But who was I to say?

  2. Hubo un tiempo, en que tenía una en casa, no muy grande, pero un día no sé como desapareció. Mucho me temo de que saliera del patio y se callera por entre los hierros de la terraza a la calle. le tenía un recipiente con agua, para que se pudiera bañar.
