Baby Turtles in Natives Nursery

There is a lot of scientific observation going on at the Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary in addition to our beloved birds. Here are two photos of young box turtles that were found in the Natives Nursery in the past week. One female and one male, 3.5 inches long, about 2-3 years old. We have a citizen scientist that has been making a long term study of the box turtle population in the sanctuary.
