    Last week I discovered this guy on my front lawn. About the size of a small dinner plate. We just left him alone and let him go about his business.

      Found these guys crossing the trail while we were walking at Wertheim National Wild Life Refuge Friday afternoon. The first one just came from a marshy area. I think he is a snapper. The second one is an Eastern Box Turtle ran into him way down the path.

        I helped this boy (or girl) cross the road at East Hampton Executive Airport.

          Correct me if I’m wrong, but if you find an Eastern Box Turtle crossing the road you help it across in the same direction it’s going.

            Indeed, and I did. Any turtle crossing the road should be moved in the direction it’s heading. They’re heading that way for a reason.

              Always thought that.

                  A couple of years ago I found this girl in my backyard. Fed her some homegrown lettuce and sent her on her way.

                    With those orange highlights you should name him Trump 2020. Or MAGA.

                      Found one on our lawn the other days well which was a first. Went grab him some food and he hauled ass down the neighbors fence line. My son tried sharing his snow cone, but he wasn’t interested.

                        That’s a red ear red slider. Not native to these parts and semi aquatic. They are common pets and are frequently discarded because they get too big for small aquariums.

                          The first one is a red eared slider.

                            I saw one once trying unsuccessfully to get up a curb and off the road. I stopped and put him up a foot or two away. And he turned around and went right back off the curb. I guess he didn't want my help.
                            Dear Buddha, please bring me a pony and a plastic rocket.

                              Yeah, we couldn’t figure out where he came from. There is a small pond about three blocks away but that’s pretty damn far for this little guy to crawl. We just let him be and eventually he crawled off; to where I have no idea.
