Franklin the Box Turtle


It has been a year and Franklin the Box Turtle is still wondering around his territory here in Allegany State Park. Not giving out too many details but for the past few months he’s been feeding on strawberries, blueberries and honeysuckle berries out in a field. Last week with the high heat he was right next to a seep that still had cold water flowing out of it. I was a little conserned with the 90+ degree weather and the no rain for the past month. His weight had gone down 18 grams but after spending some valuable time at the spring . . . . His weight went back up 12 more grams and now wondering through the woods (right around where he was last year).

  2. I have not seen a single turtle living here in the Atlanta suburbs. Turtles were a part of daily life living in rural Virginia. They must not like the traffic here.
