Mississippi Mud Turtle

By | May 27, 2021

When you look at my first photo you will see that I was lucky to even see this Turtle. I spotted the Turtle on the edge of the road next to a field that had been plowed at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I would never have seen it if it hadn’t of moved.
