I would like to formally introduce everyone Forrest Stumps.

Forrest Stumps is a Male Wood Turtle, approximately 10 years of age.Forrest Stumps is obviously missing his front limbs, but that doesn’t hinder him, since he would barely hold still for photos. He’s obviously eating, since he crapped all over.

Mr. Stumps was going to go to rehab, but he told us he doesn’t have a problem. It will be interesting to see if we run into him a few more times this year and find out what he’s been up to.

Friends! The shells need your help! Did you know it’s still legal to harvest Diamond back Terrapins and Snappers in New york state?!  The Diamond Back is listed as a species of special concern by CITES and yet harvesting them in their native territory is not illegal! How is this possible. 

PLEASE take a moment to sign this petition and share it with others. Time is running out and we can’t let another shell join the lengthy list of critically endangered species. 

Don’t just reblog, Sign the petition and then Reblog!
