About a week ago, my mom was driving home from work and notices a box turtle sitting on the road. She pulled over and went over to it, wanting to take it home for a small bit so I could see it, but she notices that the top of it's shell was cracked, and it had an organ (My mom believes it to be it's liver or lung) hanging outside of it's shell. She then notices three eggs around it, which lead her to the conclusion that the turtle was in fact a mother. My mom took the poor turtle to the grassy area by the road, and took the eggs home. We do hope that they will hatch, and so far, things are looking pretty good.
Edit: Sadly, none of the eggs survived.
