We have some new critters in our back yard. We now have a pair of Eastern Box Turtle that live by the pool. They will probably stay, as I feed them daily, they love hotdogs. In this picture the female has wandered off about a 100 feet from her spot near the pool. I took her picture went into the house for a minute or two and went I went back out she was in her old spot by the pool, ready for lunch!
Every year about this time we get a new crop of toads, they start out less than a 1/2 inch, but grow quickly. When I first see them I know that just a day or so ago they were still tadpoles, and that they were probably in a bole of a tree where water is trapped, but search as I may I can never find them as tadpoles.
