    Well today I was doing a little enclosure work and just about stepped on this little one and when I say little, I really mean little. Welcome Groot to the world.

    Lol! I didn't even know who Groot was until a preview came up at the movies during Kong.

    yep, wasn't sure he was a live at first. he was sitting next to the food dish and wasn't moving. got him soaked and he started perking up. seems a little fragile compared to the others I've found in the past.

    Isn't it though! Today after the rains clear I'm going to do some more searching, usually when I find one there's a few more. It's my Easter Egg hunt.

    She did a good job with the picture. Baby Groot has some promising color for such a young turtle.
