I also wanted to share some photos from a research trip that I took with some wildlife biologist last Saturday searching for Box turtles. It was an extremely hot morning but we where able to find three turtles and one more that had already been captured before. Below is a photo of one of the captured three and beneath that are some photos of another box turtle that my neighbor and I came across while walking back from dropping our kids of at school. It is not every day that you find a turtle that has dug a nest and in the process of laying eggs - It was truly remarkable and made for an exciting Monday morning!
