North American Wood Turtle (Glyptemys insculpta)

  • Inhabits the Great Lakes region as far as eastern Minnesota, through the northern Appalachians to northern Virginia, and up to Nova Scotia
  • Can live more than 40 years
  • When hunting worms the wood turtle will thump the ground to make worms think it’s raining, which causes them to come up out of the ground to be eaten
  • Classified as Endangered on the IUCN red list

I do not own these images or this information

I do hope you are all following this blog. Lots of amazing info and well look at those pics. LOVE. 


I don’t know what I did karmically to deserve such naughty pets.

Ahahahaha. Talented little troublemaker!

I ask myself this too but then I remember that the naughtiness is pretty much what I love most about them (or her in my case.. though I can easily include a certain ennui filled cat that I love as though he were my own)
