  1. Yeah, I wouldn’t have given it a second thought–that critter would’ve been in my house on my carpet in SECONDS.

  2. It was happily munching earthworms, but by the time I grabbed my camera, my dog scared it back into its shell.

    Lucky you! Terrapene carolina, for the curious. Looks like a probable female (eye color).

  4. Seriously? Eye color is dimorphic in turtles? That’s…both awesome and really boring! 😀
