Just protecting what I love on an island in the Pacific.
Saturday, March 31
At the conclusion of our morning walkabout we found this little little guy in our lower pond. He was about 6 inches from the shore just floating. We watched for a couple of moments and saw no movement, so hubby plucked him for the pond for a closer look. The tiny turtle did move his head, so we quickly snapped a few photos and placed him back near the edge of the water. Unfortunately, a check on the turtle late this afternoon found him dead (he was right where we left him this morning). I am no turtle expert, but I think this was just a plain ole pond turtle.Any turtle experts out there???
