What a nice blog! I am often stopping on the roads in my area at this time of year and "escorting" many a turtle across the road. Nice to know someone else out there is doing the same; taking a moment to stop and help them safely to the other side. I have bookmarked your site and will be stopping back again and again.


please don't write on the turtle! their shells can easily become infected and it is often fatal to the animal.

What an enjoyable blog. I particularly enjoyed this post as I am writing one now on the painted turtle. Our pond is too shallow for snappers (although I rather like them) and I've not seen the stinkpot there. But we are replete with painted's, and I have found an eastern box turtle. We have loads of snakes, too, so the reptiles are nicely represented. I'll be checking back often to your site. Thanks for the good read.
