T-U-R-T-L-E POWER

Ellen and I found a $2 net at a toy store the other day and thought it would be useful on our semi-frequent turtle hunts. Before we used sticks and gently batted them towards the shore like hockey pucks. A runner had found a box turtle on a hill and dropped off at the lake shore, Ellen jumped in the water and snagged a baby musk turtle, and I spotted a baby alligator snapping turtle in a swampy mess a few feet behind us. We thought the snapper was the best find, and couldn't help but bring it home for the night. Also, it was getting dark and I wanted to photograph it. I dropped him back off at the same spot earlier today. It would have been cool to keep, but they get big. The last thing I need is a Rahzar on my hands.
