Eastern Box Turtle Rescue

On the way to the Folsom Native Plant Society Meeting, we observed an eastern box turtle that was nearly hit while it was trying to cross a busy highway. We passed it up, but quickly backed up when no cars were coming and we were able to snatch it from the jaws of death. It is an especially colorful one, with beautiful patterns on its shell. We brought it home and released it on our land.
