I can honestly say I have never seen a turtle eat a cucumber. I learn something new every day!!
I just pulled my cucumber plant up- I killed it because I haven't been watering the garden bed. Egads!

I think that one is all his now.

I wonder if he burped . . . A bit of salt and pepper, sliced onions, some vinegar, water . . . wonder if he would like that too.

Sorry about the cucumber but he is so darn cute he is forgiven in my eyes:) Hug B

Have seen river turtles eating on side of bank, but never a cucumber - that must have been a delectable treat for this cute turtle. Love the markings on his back. Hi n Hugz to all :)

Sandra said...

so cool... why didn't you peel it for him? LOL
i love to watch the big tortoises at the Jungle gardens eating lettuce by the pounds, have not seen them with cukes before

Farm Girl said...

Oh that is just a great shot. Look at all of those bites.

Good picture taking! I have also seen turtles eat strawberries and tomatoes if they are low enough : ) I caught the dog in the sweet corn patch eating corn LOL...guess we gotta share!

That's why we grow our cukes in the front yard and not in the back with the munchers in a shell. I plant strawberries and cantalope for them in the backyard. Love this guys markings. Oma Linda

Sandy said...

Oh he / she is precious, I just love turtles. I wonder how old the turtles is.

Heather Duncan said...

Aww. Hope he enjoyed his little snack. I rather have a turtle munching on my veggies than the ground hogs we have dealt with. At least they move slow. hehe

McGuffy Ann said...

I love this! That looks exactly like a Box Turtle I used to have.

Sandee said...

Hey, he's eating that cucumber just like I eat an ear of corn. Too cute.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

You must raise some tasty cukes:)

Very pretty shell.
Will (s)he come to lunch for feasting on the cuke? ;-)
Have a great Friday, Gail. :-)
