turtle by crawlintothesun turtle by crawlintothesun
A few years back, a friend of mine saw something odd in her yard... and discovered it ot be an eastern box turtle [this in an almost urban area]... she didn't know proper care and after a while, decided to pass it on to me [I have owned numerous turtles of a variety of species before]... She had let it run the house and it was pretty "tame" ... but as soon as I put iher into the enlcosure, her instincts snapped back, originally wild, once tamed and wild again- [hence the wild animal category]

We have an oustide enclosure for this turtle and my three toed box turtle- my boyfriend loves turtles so I took some shots and plan on making some prints... , and this one is I think one of the best out of this session [started to rain so I was cut short...]

gotta agree with bandgeek, it looks like it should be in some nature magazine somewhere (maybe not national geographic but definitely SOMETHING)

great shot
