Turtle Crosses the Walk

Conversation after Mr. Palindrome sent me the following cell phone pictures while I was out of town:

Me: Did you take him back to the creek?

Mr. P: Oh, that's where came from?  Makes sense.  I didn't know how he got there! 

Me: So you just let him struggle the 18 turtle equivalent miles back to the creek?

Mr. P: I had a final exam to get to.  You're lucky you got pictures for the blog.

Me: I'm lucky, but he's still out there, probably stuck in the fence slats!  Poor guy!

Mr. P:  Who knows! He could have bitten me!

Me: Turtle neglecter! Scaredy cat!  His blood is on your hands.

Do you know anything about our visitor? He sure is a little cutie!


  1. Awww, what a cutie! I hope he made it to his destination without mishap :)

  2. He IS cute!! Hope he made it okay. I was always obsessed with finding turtles as a kid...not sure why, lol.

  3. He looks like a box turtle to me. But, he is really, really cute. :) We found one here roaming the streets, and we took him back to the wooded area. I don't know if he liked that or not, but we thought it was safer than the road.

  4. I think he's a box, they're incredibly independent! We always rescued them as kids. They didn't like that, they hissed. I hope he made it wherever he was going!
