Baby Turtle — Revisited

I was strolling through a local forest preserve when I spotted this little guy in the middle of a well-traveled path. I’m pretty sure he had just hatched, and he had a long way to go to get to water. I did my good deed for the day and carried him to the closest pond.

I spotted another one on Friday, just about the same size as the one above. This one seemed a lot livelier — it was certainly a lot cleaner — and it was much closer to water. Since I was taken to task for helping out the first one, I put this one back where I found it.

    Thus breaking evolution’s plan for him and he will now be too weak to survive in the pond as the journey is what guarantees his survival there. Heartless monster you.
