Myrtle the Turtle

By , June 13, 2010 9:09 pm

Look what we saw early one morning last week:

This determined little mama climbed out of the swamp (what looks like a whole mess of weeds above, not to be confused with the GIANT THISTLE that’s about to take over our grill) and up a fairly steep slope to dig a hole in our backyard to lay her eggs.

I don’t think she much appreciated me staring and taking pictures while she was hard at work…or maybe it was the two fixated kitties at my feet who were just BEGGING me to open the door so they could go investigate.

Okay, Madre, what type of turtle babies should we be expecting?

    Watch your fingers and toes (and maybe little kitties).
    This big Mama is a beautiful snapper.
