Snapping Turtle Baby 3

    Newer Older

    These Snapping Turtles were found as eggs by a homeowner in Batavia Township (Ohio). They were about to be destroyed by a home improvement project in the yard, so the homeowner alerted the Hamilton County Park District naturalists at Woodland Mound Park who dug up the eggs in the hopes of rescuing them.

    Surprisingly 30 of the 32 eggs hatched, and since the eggs came from Clermont County, the Hamilton County Park District Naturalists contacted us to release the turtles close to where they were found.
