I didn’t want to show ANOTHER turtle photo so soon after the last one, BUT… this is mammoth size! I realize there are turtles larger than this one, but I doubt many people have seen them, other than at the zoo. (I could be wrong though.)
As I was driving home one evening, I saw a car ahead of me stopped in the middle of the road (a country road), with the driver’s door open, and a woman standing, waiving a t-shirt at something in the road. I think she was trying to see if what she was looking at was alive. I saw her quickly jump back in her car. Clearly it was alive. As I approached the animal in the road, I saw that it was a HUGE turtle. I put my flashers on, and got out of the car for a photo session.
Someone who drove by said they had seen a turtle about TWICE that size in the area, and mentioned that’s why you should never go swimming in the creeks or river nearby.PAID ENDORSEMENT DISCLOSURE: In order for me to support my blogging activities, I may receive monetary compensation or other types of remuneration for my endorsement, recommendation, testimonial and/or link to any products or services from this blog.
