I was out turtling again last thursday. Unfortunately my phone died very early on and I didn't bring a real camera. Just as well since it was a lackluster turtle day for myself. The rest of the gang did great. We...I mean THEY found 11 turtles. I found only 2. I went the whole morning without finding any turtles and was having my own pity party..."I'll never find a turtle and I won't find any this season. Waah." Everyone else was finding them everywhere and just a few feet from where I was walking. But finally I found 2 in the afternoon. Phew. So these little guys seem to be on the prowl. I hooked these 2 kids up. I'm hoping these 2 hook up since they found them so close. The boy in this pic is the box turtle in my previous post.
You can tell a boy from a girl by looking at their bellies. If there's an indentation, that's a boy. Girls have a flat belly.
