    Redfoot infestation

    Yes. I am living the dream. I’m infested with redfoots. A good non-damaging infestation albeit overwhelming. The week leading up to Hurricane Irma I found 17 babies outside. A month later 6 more. I have some older babies too but my question is what do I do with them? It’s looking like I might...

    What kind of box turtle is this?

    This little guy turned up at the 4 way stop sign yesterday. I can't tell what he is. He's not a Florida box turtle which would be our native species so he's joined our family for now. He's high energy and doesn't bite. No lost turtle signs up anywhere or on Craig's List.
