CarKiller was on his way home today and he almost hit one of God’s creatures. But being the observant boy he is, he stopped and rescued the little guy. He brought him home and named him “Street” and begged to be able to keep him. I had to say no… this little guy needs to be in his natural habitat and CarKiller is enlisting soon! I sure don’t want to be saddled with it’s care while he’s gone!
It took a while, but after a TON of images and a decent field guide we are pretty sure he’s a Red Eared Slider. You know, my friend over at Home is Where the Heart Is, had her own little turtle incident this week!
