    Monitoring weight gain in youngsters...

    From the "I've never seen that before" department...

    Not tortoises, but a pair of Three-Toed box turtles copulating in their pool. The female on the left actually has her head underwater (she raised it later after the photo shoot). I've had box turtles for over 50 years, seen a lot of weird things, but never this...
