The Great Turtle Adventue

Far, far from water we discovered this baby
Lil asked, What is this thing?
Hubby's size twelve gives you an idea how big it was.
Well, it's not a poison snake, Bonnie said.
Today instead of fried turtle 
(we're from the South and it ain't cooked unless it's fried)
we decided to help this big fellow out.
A Gator ride later he reaches fresh water and is set free.
Bonnie is still not sure what to think.
Ki-Anne sticks her head under the water trying to track the turtle
Bonnie tries too
The turtle swims away.

They always come in our yard and pasture. We presume from the bayou across the street. It's usually females, I think; and usually to lay eggs. Don't think we've ever seen little ones, but crows and other critters are quick to dig up the nests. They're usually only a few inches deep.
There's no lack of turtles across the street, I know that.
Or weeds. If farmers or neighbors don't keep the bayou clear, it just gets overgrown.

Great pictures! God bless. ♥

Nice relocation and I am sure was appreciated. Loved your under water tracking dogs.
