Turtles and Tortoises need equal time with other creatures. Post your best shot.


Starting off this thread with this little guy I found at Lake Arrowhead State Park outside Wichita Falls, Texas while walking a trail at sunset.

Very colourful turtle.

It's certainly suitably attired for crossing the road.

Yep, and I had helped two other turtles earlier that day but this guy didn't seem to need any, I went ahead and stayed to make sure he crossed safely.
