Remember this little guy? This is the soft shell turtle that Allison found in the yard a few weeks ago. Isn't he cute? Here is the soft shell turtle I picked up from the side of the road in our neighborhood on Sunday. He was in the middle of all of the construction, so I brought him home and released him in the pond behind the house.
He was pretty easy going, so we had a chance to get really up close. They are neat animals. He is not as "cute" as the little guy, but he was really cool. It is like looking at an alien when you get to really check them out. Doesn't he look happy?!
