Saving The Smiling Turtle


--by Sisip, posted Nov 5, 2013
It was a hot day and my mom and I were driving down our street. Mom saw a moving lump right in front of the car and screeched to a stop. 

I stepped out and saw a turtle limping along the road. My mom got out after me and we worked together to lift this heavy creature of of the road onto the grassy strip at the edge of the road. 

It seemed to me like the turtle smiled a little before slowly wandering off into the grass. I laughed before running back to the car.

I pulled around to the side of the corner and carried her into my car.
Less that two minutes later i released her into the river stream that is at the end of our property.
I learned that red box turtles are indigenous to our waterways!
