Backyard Wildlife: Turtle

Turtle photo

I took this photo in my back yard yesterday. It is the first time I have seen a turtle there. I saw a chipmunk today – I have see them occasionally but can’t get a photo of them – they move quite quickly 🙂 Other wildlife I have seen in my backyard: possum, raccoon, mole, fox, squirrels, rabbits, many birds including hawks and/or falcons, robins, starlings, doves, a humming bird once (front yard), butterflies, bats, lightning bugs, all sorts of bees, ants, praying mantis, and many more birds. And I see several cats prowl the yard frequently.

    This photo shows a fox in my backyard from a few months ago. It liked to rest on that tree stump for a couple days – I have not seen it since…

    “The third poster shows the threats that our turtles are facing — a turtle is trapped in a fisherman’s net, a turtle is consuming a plastic bag, which it mistakes as a jellyfish, and there are rubbish on the sea floor…”

    Plus it is great to just go grab some fresh food and eat it. It tastes great and is healthy. The increasing price of food it makes it more attractive. I plant a few tomato plants and some pepper and cucumber plants…

    Turtles make nice pets. I used to have one growing up. I grew up near a park and every year some turtle would wonder in our back yard.
