|Box Turtle in the Garden|
Watering them enough to keep them moist he watched over them like a mother hen, I mean turtle. Finally they hatched, first the pond turtle, who immediately buried itself in the leaves and dirt. Then what turned out to be a box turtle. For nearly 2 years he raised them. Putting them in separate aquariums so the pond turtle could have water to swim in and the box turtle could have enough land to roam around in.
This year the pond turtle just got too big for his aquarium and Mac knew it was time to let him go. So he took him to the lagoon and put him in. Later in the spring he decided that it was time to let the box turtle go too, he was released into the garden where he spent several days, but has now disappeared. Sad to see them go, but we know they had a good start in life.
