Be able to enjoy this turtles in savage,it's the best way, wonderful!!! I wonder how she got up, to get inside of your garden beds...I keep seven grown turtles and four babys in my little garden.They are not water turtles.But I have to feed them every day and worm them once a year.I was able,(and very lucky) a couple of mouth ago,to video record the moment she was lying the eggs. :) http://locaxmisgallinas.blogspot.com.es/2012/04/video-de-tortuga-poniendo-huevos.html
Great photos! I love turtles, and you captured some neat shots! We live in the woods, and turtles wander through quite a bit, on their way to find a wetlands. I like to pose them, take a picture, and then send them on their way! I've found that if they are headed north, and you place then in a southern direction or location, they begin to head north once again - and vice versa. Don't know why this is!
One of the few things I like about snapping turtles is how the back of their carapace is jagged... a reminder that the front is a little sharp, too ;-)
