Jim drove in the yard..blowing the horn…and yelling “get your camera!!”. There is a big turtle walking down the road.
We live on a dead-end dirt road. I don’t know where it came from…but it was on a mission and it didn’t want to stop and visit.
I kept trying to figure out a place for it on our property…..but it is illegal to remove them from their home range.
Jim took this picture of us so you could see how big it is.
There are tree farms on both sides of this road and on both sides after the cross road. Perhaps it has a mate or knows of one and is headed that way. They can have and use several burrows and may be headed to one of those. I hope so. I would love to have it stay in the area….and be free to roam.
