I found this little friend while mowing the lawn. Finished mowing then put friend back.
YAY!! What a gorgeous little one to grace your lawn! Way to put it back so it can bless you with more shell baby encounters years from now. Just another reason to #SHELLEBRATE #WorldTurtleDay!!
It’s not even June and I’ve met all these lovely turtles!
½. Lovely snapper who fell in my neighbors window well. dug around a lot in there so I assume it’s a female looking to lay eggs. Look how long her neck is in the second pic! Luckily she wasn’t super defensive bc this one kid put his face super close to her.
2. Found this guy on the road. It’s alive, just hiding! Friend was returned to the grass.
3. Babies! They’re so damn cute! I’ve seen 3 so far and I love them all. I love seeing the variations in their shell patterns too, especially since these guys probably came from the same clutch.
Submitted by @imwiththedroid Who, whoa! is clearly on the good side of the turtpocalypse! The shells are flocking to you! you’re a chosen human!
Back in October, I went herping with my local Herpetological Society and we found the smallest angry boy ever!
The tiniest grumps ever!! A quality find! I’m sure he/she will remember you fondly despite the grumpy face 😀
The cuteness is real.
My kingdom! One day I will stop upon every inch of you!
Higher, human chariot! I must have a clear view of my domain!
Mr grumpy face dislikes when I watch him poo
come on, human! a little privacy please! you get to shut the door … gaw!
loves to bask and look cute while doing it.
For his next trick, tiny tort will bask on rock and dirt at the same time!
Someone’s excited for xmas!
It never hurts to be early, tiny shell friend! Santa has notes!
Spike looking cute as ever
Like many shells, Spike’s human was overwhelmed by his cuteness and forgot to bring snacks during this photo shoot. Spike will work on that by yawning within view of the camera tomorrow. That always ends with a treat and a squee.
“Ahh, sunbathing time…”
Dis da best tanning bed ever! A little to the left human!
In the midst of burrowing, he ponders whether to choose this corner or another one…
but what if the other corner is actually more comfy? Decisions are hard! THE STRUGGLE IS REAL HUMANS!
