TURTLE

I was out last week with a group of biology majors doing some research for an article I’m writing. I got to catch turtles! And canoe for the first time in years. The best part of the day was finding this guy (yes, he’s male). Apparently a predator got him, taking a big bite out of his shell. He managed to not only survive the attack but keep his leg. Which is pretty incredible, according to my turtle experts.

Science is pretty cool.
