Those crazy turtles. . . don't they realize it's COLD out there? Is that a bit of snow, or is it frost?

It's been cold here this weekend too. Got down below freezing at night and windy and 50s with more clouds than sun during the day. By mid week should be upper 60s to mid 70s. Hopefully.

I walked around my three toe yard today and found my favorite little one just sitting out in the open with swollen shut eyes. Dang it, anyway! Looks like I'm gonna have an indoor box turtle over the winter.

that's why i go out looking for turtles this time of year , i know the feeling of seeing something you shouldn't be seeing , like getting more work ..... since i been keeping turtles native to where i live , i really do hate having to bring any in ........ the winters are a nice break , but i always look forward to the spring ...... the ones i have to bring in , the R.P.manni , they made it outside this year until the beginning of november , they were outside for probably 6 months this year , they're easier to care for outside also .......
