The $25 Snapping Turtle...Sue's Photo & Description:

Traveling down highway 40B we saw something on the road. As we got closer we saw this snapping turtle. This is a very busy highway at times so we stopped and I got out of the car. another car was heading right for the turtle. To make this long story shorter...I took off my sweater and placed it over the turtle and picked it up. I took him across the road in the directing he was heading. No one told me that turtles stink...I mean really stink. Off to Walmart to get a new sweater...no good deed goes unpunished :) Yes, it was a big one and very heavy...that surprised me.

Prima di rispondere all'impulso di acquistare una di quelle deliziose tartarughine d'acqua non più grandi di una monetina che aspettano di essere salvate da te insieme ad altre piccole sorelle, ti vogliamo invitare a leggere attentamente quanto segue, poiché alcune informazioni sono volutamente occultate da chi ha tutto da guadagnare dal tuo interesse per gli animali.

Queste tartarughine crescono molto velocemente e non è vero che se mangiano poco o sono alloggiate in vaschette minuscole se ne limita la crescita (è invece certo che così si ammalino per deficit alimentari e cattiva gestione). Ecco quello che nessuno ti dice...

Aggiungo rispetto a quanto potrete leggere nel sito che la testuggine palustre americana a braccetto con l'inquinamento sta portando all'estinzione la nostra testuggine palustre (europea).

I've been removing files from my computer and came across this. Like the title says....its slow going.

 

Have a great Thursday and I will be around as available!

 

Nancy loves turtles...so I dedicate this to her! Thanks for your encouragement, Nancy turtlemom4bacon's photostream

 

The turtle swam out from the lake and chased away some ducks that were sitting near.

The trip to the national zoo had a few good captures. In general I was unable to get into the game so to speak and had the camera settings off from what I would have done if I took my time and thought about it more. Such goofs should get less frequent with more practice.

Found this little guy at work this morning. I set him atop a nickel for size comparison.

Wandering the two tracks near Crooked Creek in north Arkansas, I came across this colorful turtle. Likely an orange box turtle.

I went to the park the other day when it was nice and warm out and was so happy to see the turtles again! After such a long winter its great to have spring finally being official tomorrow!

Snorkeling with a Green Turtle in the Red Sea Egypt is a very special experience.

 

It made clear how small we people actually are. There are other creatures on our planet that need protecting and these belong to the species which need just this.

 

While floating in the water right next to this really huge turtle I managed to get this shot with the underwater camera which I had with me. The Fujifilm XP60 did a fantastic job and the Nik software collection helped get the most out of this photograph.
