This painted turtle came in for care. He may have been hit by a car or mower. He caught a lucky break to be sure as only the carapace was broken!
When seeing turtles crossing the road, if it is safe for you to do so, move them to the other side in the direction they are going. Our Box turtles are in trouble so please do not take them home. They need to stay wild to reproduce. Learn more about box turtles and how you can help.
