Turtle Patrol

Since my daughter was little we have always been on turtle patrol as we drive our hilly and twisted country roads. At first sight of an eastern box turtle (Terrapene carolina carolina) in the road we quickly stop and escort the slow moving fellow to the woods or nearby creek. We then make sure that everyone we meet that day hears about the turle rescue, so they too will be ready to act when they see a turtle on the pavement.

Here's another turtle story from another part of Virginia.
