When I was making my rounds this a.m. I saw my large Florida soft-shell out of the water. Its not something you see very often. She's about 18" front to back.





And while I was taking her picture, the Phrynops came out of the water to see if I had anything to eat:

The pond was over-full, and thus easy to climb out of, however, I have what I THINK are two males (smaller) and one female, so she might be looking for a nest-digging spot.

Such nice clear pictures of her. So did you have goodies for those other two "starving" turtles? :D I always feel bad when somebody begs and my hands are empty.

What a face on that Phrynops. I would be giving him hand outs all day if he kept looking at me like that.
