A Box Turtle Hurrying Across A Road

By | July 7, 2020

This Box Turtle was moving fast across the road and I didn’t need to worry about helping it. I don’t think I have ever seen one move as fast as this one did.

You will notice in the photo that the Turtle is staying low to the road as it is moving. Its neck is stretched out in front of it like it is trying to cross a finish line.
