Volunteer day in the Asian Collections

Julie spotted two of these baby box turtles. This is the larger one!

I'm always glad to see signs that box turtles are reproducing. What with buildings, parking lots, roads, cars, etc. things don't seem to be too congenial for them. I was encouraged to read a study that suggested that while a good number of drivers will swerve to hit a snake, almost everybody makes an effort to avoid hitting turtles.

Hi Chris
Good to hear about the turtles. No one would ever hit a turtle. Remember the fine specimins we collected down by the creek?
