Andy the Ornate Box Turtle

Andy the Ornate Box Turtle

I was going out to check the mail today and there walking up the front walk as if he were coming to visit is this box turtle. My first thought was …. boy that leaf really looks like a turtle … then he moved his head. At that point I made a mental note to WEAR my glasses when I go to check the mail.

So I went and got a box for Andy to live in for a bit till I could find a reptile rescue. Which I did … the Rio Grande Turtle and Tortoise Club gladly took him. Poor little guy had a big chip off the back of his shell but he was feisty as heck and I am sure he will be fine.

Thank you Rio Grande Turtle and Tortoise Club.

    Damned lucky turtle if you ask me. First the universe made sure he got to the exact right person to save him and she just happened to know to make a call or two to find out who could take care of him the best. What are the chances? The universe also provided you yet one more wonderful shot of nature. I love the way you see things Helen. Luf Ya and Be Blessed,
