Our Turtle and His Soft Drink
From the pond, had made his (or her) way all the way up the hill, and around the house to the front. Found parked near Tana. A small one. We have had them as large as dinner plates.
* He/she looks to be a Midland Painted Turtle (Chrysemys picta marginata), as found here. A few years ago, Man was snapped at by a turtle in our yard, maybe the Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina serpentina) as found on the same page.
