Another Sunday of sailing with my daughter. She found this little guy on the beach!
This little guy was in the nest from last year, probably a late nest that did not get sufficient warmth to hatch in the aug/Sept period as most other painted turtrles so the eggs remain in the ground over winter and hatch in the spring. This is a phenomenon that never ceases to amaze me, a reptilian embryoe that can be frozen solid and then be alive and viable to hatch the following spring !!
Wow, I had no clue!
