Do You See The Turtle

March 25, 2018  •  1 Comment

When you look at my first photo you will see that I was lucky to even see this Turtle. I spotted the Turtle on the edge of the road next to a field that had been plowed at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I would never have seen it if it hadn't of moved.

I sat on the edge of the road and was able to wait for this Turtle to start walking. It went back into the plowed field. It is time to start watching for them on the roads. I saw several more as I was driving yesterday.

I'm not sure what type of Turtle this is but I would guess some type of Mud Turtle.

The weather here in my area has been very warm. I think it got close to 80 degrees yesterday. I should start seeing lots of Turtles and Snakes.

Snapping Turtles mud themselves up like this sometimes. As a youngster, one time, I was crossing a creek going from rock to rock bare-footed, and I stepped right on the back of an apparently sleeping snapping turtle.... It did not like being stepped on and I learned a lesson I never have forgotten.
