Kolin and I rescued this little box turtle from the middle of the road. Her name is Scooter. By the rings on her shell we think she is about 10 years old. She didn't seem scared of us, kept her head and legs out a lot of the time. Maybe she's been captured before ;) While we had her we researched turtles at the library and on the internet and learned about what they ate and what they need to live. That helped us decide that she needed to be free. We kept her for a couple of days and then took her to a wooded area near a creek and let her go.
