Here is the big guys mug shot. He struggled to get out of the pool but couldn’t pull his big turtle shelled body over the edge.

  • Thanks. I’m sure he was cute to another turtle.

    Wow, thank goodness you were there to help! :)

  • I really did try and help him off the cover. When my encouraging words didn’t work, I tried to lift up his back end with the pool skimmer but he was to heavy. Evenually, he figured out to go to the front of the cover, crawled out and went under a bush to rest. I hope he found his way back to the lake. I kept my dogs in the house most of the day so that they didn’t get in his face.
