We had a little visitor in our yard this week! We found him in our front yard near a busy road and observed him for a little while before relocating him to the woods behind our house. Zeke was very excited about his new friend!
Miles, of course, had a bazillion questions about turtles, most of which I could not answer. So we did a little research. Our turtle friend is a three toed box turtle, which we learned can live more than 50 years! Based on the number of ridges on his shell, our turtle is approximately 10 years old.
