Turtles

This is a sea turtle I caught when we were fishing in the lake. If it doesn't seem right that I actually caught a real sea turtle in a fresh water lake it's because I didn't. It's plastic. I thought it was funny. Daniel and I put him be the edge of the lake and a couple of my family members thought he was real.

This is a real turtle we found. My mom wasn't sure if we were trying to trick her again with a fake turtle until it started to move. It is a blandings turtle and is on the endangered species list as a low threat. I think he is really cute with his little yellow chiny chin.

okay that first comment was from anthony logged in as me. i would NOT consider eating that first one. close up is not as convincing as far away shot, but very funny. and that second beast has some claws! whered you find him? is he still hanging nearby you guys?

We found him at my brother Pauls house. We were helping him put in some sprinklers. But the turtle found his way back to a river. My brother said he saw him a couple days later crossing a big road so hopefully he stays safe.

We just saw a turtle that had been hit too. It makes me feel so sad because their not like other animals that can get out of the way. Daniel said out of all the animals he would feel the worst if he hit a turtle.
