Check out this video. I usually find a couple every year. I also have found quite a few empty shells, which makes me wonder what is going on?

This is a very interesting study. BTW I have a couple of Boykins, and they are awesome little dogs.

That’s cool as hell!

I’ve seen a few this year. Might be because I’ve been looking for them since this thread started.

Painted turtle, those guys are all over.

I have stopped numerous times throughout the years to pick up turtles off the road,snappers included. One thing I was told is that you should always take them to the other side of the road that they are facing. They are going that way for a reason, probably to lay eggs.
