Another set of photographs from the New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill taken in 2015. I have not published these for sale as they depict a fountain that I did not build myself and fall into grey areas of copyright law.

A fountain where a sculpted turtle is projecting a stream of water from its mouth that moves from the left to the right as a steady stream before becoming large droplets that splash into the water below. Green trees are in the background along with a red deciduous tree on the right side. Pink, yellow and red flowers are in the background alongside a small set of stairs. The sky is filled with ominous dark grey/blue clouds. A brick building is visible on the right side behind a red tree in autumn.

I just finished my #WildlifeRehabilitation logs. I had 67 animals in care this year. 49 were reptiles (3 snakes, 46 #turtles). Half died unfortunately, which makes me sad in the remembering. 12 turtles are still with me, along with an opossum. I had 3 #frogs this year, all released. I like rehabbing frogs. They are surprisingly resilient and appreciate free meals.

(Pictured is a wood turtle who is staying for the winter. He also appreciates free meals.)

still in absolute awe of this turtle. seeing them trundle towards me over sticks and through mud and splashing into the water is one of the highlights of my year. also can't believe this was my first time out with my camera on a kayak lmao i got so lucky!

#turtles #NaturePhotography

a very large snapping turtle stepping into the water from a muddy and stick filled bank. their shell is dry and dirty. their face and front edge of their shell has just hit the water with splash and a little wave is starting to form around them.
the same turtle a frame later taking another step into the water, now their chin is up above the water and wet revealing the orange mottled pattern of their skin that was hidden with dried mud and dust. another little wave has formed off the front edge of their shell

Oh wow ! cette famille a des box turtles et ces animaux hibernent, donc ils les aident à hiberner en les enterrant dans un coin du jardin pour 5 mois 😳

ça fait 25 ans qu'ils font ça et les animaux ne s'en portent que mieux, mais c'est à la fois très intéressant et un peu malaisant, ça réveille certains cauchemars quelque part.

fascinant monde des reptiles en tout cas !

"A preservation program in Colombia, in collaboration with local fishermen communities, saw the successful return of 500 baby turtles back to the Pacific Ocean. Turtle eggs found on beaches were collected and brought to a turtle sanctuary for monitoring until they hatched and could be released back into the wild."

Reptile Awareness Day (really any day that ends in 'y' for many of my friends). It's tough to remain optimistic - too many psychopaths who would pave this planet to increase shareholder value. Here's a hatchling Malayan Flat-shelled Turtle (Notochelys platynota), egg tooth and all, from southern Thailand. A moment of joy. #nature #herps #turtles #herpsofmastodon

#TIL that turtles can breathe through their butts.

Then I went on Wikipedia and learnt that mammals can do this too. Also learnt that scientists have asphyxiated a bunch of mice with and without sandpapering the inside of their arseholes first to confirm this.

I joined a group from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences where we observed the turtle rescue volunteers in action. We didn't get to see a nest hatch out, but did see a nest excavation. Volunteers count the hatched/unhatched eggs. In one of the nests they found two little guys that hadn't quite made it out, and we were able to watch them be released into the ocean, where they will make their way to the Gulf Stream!

Why did the turtle cross the road.

I came across this three-toed box turtle (Terrapene triunguis) while takin Ben to his appointment this morning. The turtle was crossing the road just down from our house. I stopped took a couple photos with my iPhone. The pick the turtle up and set it on the side of the road where it was headed. I worried that somebody would drive down the road and run it over.

"From the west to the east of its range, the three-toed box turtle can be found from eastern Texas to the northern edge of the Florida Panhandle. Its northernmost range is in Missouri and Kansas, while the southernmost one is in Louisiana. Three-toed box turtles interbreed with other subspecies of common box turtles which overlap the borders of this area. An example of this occurs in the eastern Mississippi valley, where this species is difficult to distinguish from the eastern box turtle. " - https://animalia.bio/three-toed-box-turtle

#photo #photography #photographer #photographylovers #turtles #reptiles

This is a relatively small turtle, I picked it up with one hand, fingers on either side of its shell.  It's mostly green but its head and front feet are more colorful, with yellow and red markings. In this photo, the turtle is crossing a gravel and dirt road, you can see the track it made moving itself along the ground.  Only its front feet are visible in this photograph.

Three-toed box turtles are so named due to the number of toes on the back feet, but some think that there are some four-toed examples too. "However, some speculate that the four-toed individuals are actually eastern box turtle × three-toed box turtle hybrids. Three-toed box turtles have a domed shell which grows to 5-7″ (13-18cm) in length. The highest part of its carapace or upper shell is more posteriorly positioned than in any of the other subspecies. The dorsal and limb coloration is commonly completely absent, although some dark blotches are common in adult turtles. These areas more often being a uniform olive green or tan color. Sometimes, faint yellow dots or lines are visible in the center of each large scute. In the males, the head and throat often display yellow, red, or orange spots. Frequently, the bottom shell or plastron is a straw yellow color and has far fewer dark markings than the plastrons of the other subspecies." - https://animalia.bio/three-toed-box-turtle
