After several weeks of well below average temperatures and about twice the amount of rainfall for April we are finally getting a break and getting back to more normal temps, but supposed to get up to an inch and half of rain tomorrow. Today I released the adult box turtles from theirwinter pen back into the big yard. Here's pics of the ones that are up and eating that I set out. These turtles live mostly wild, I only handle twice a year, once in the spring to set them out and then in the fall to put them back in the winter pen.There are 2 more females that I didn't put in the winter pen last fall and I saw one of them a week or so ago out in the yard but haven't seen her since. Turning them loose usually happens around May 1st so we are right on schedule.
