You guys. You aren’t going to believe this!!
Yesterday I posted about my Snapping Turtle Dream. I stayed home sick. I have strep throat, but whatever, that isn’t the point of the story.
I had made an appointment to go to the doctor for the obligatory throat culture. When I dragged my limp, achey body out to my car, what do you think I saw!?
I’m not sure if it was the same one (Greenie) that we watched lay eggs a couple months ago, but there she was, hunkered down in the earth next to the driveway.
She gave me stern regard as I tiptoed over to get a closer look at her. I could tell she did not like my proximity, as she started to tuck her leathery neck back into her shell, so I backed up.
I navigated my car cautiously around her. When I returned from the doctor, she was gone, but there was a fluffy pile of sandy dirt where she had dug in to lay and then bury her eggs.
What do you make of that?
