Description

Man, he was so cute!

ETA 9/12/07-

I used to walk all the time in Duxbury, MA. I used to see many turtles squished as they left their ponds to cross roads and lay eggs. Then eventually you would see babies squished as they tried to make it back to the pond but were hit by cars. It just so happened that one day I saw a live baby painted turtle! I took him home to show everyone and to take photos of course (there are other rescue photos in my gallery). Then I released the baby behind where I was living into a pond--which is pretty far back from roads.

I also saved a second baby turtle weeks later. but I've moved since then and no longer live in an area with so much wildlife. It makes me sad.
