It’s that time of year. We have sea turtles hatching on our beaches, and the protected Florida gopher tortoise emerging from their nests.

This little girl is just about 3 inches long – all of her extended – and feeding on purslane (foreground) and other native plants.

I think she’s beautiful. And she’s fast.

    oh my goodness…oh my goodness…..I LOVE turtles and toroises! ooooh lucky u to see this little lady! Sadly sooo many of our turtles are threatened….I’m beginning to wonder if our ‘common’ box turtle isn’t headed the direction like this lady species already has.
