A little musky

A few weeks ago I reported on a very small, newly hatched turtle seen making its way across the path to the Wetlands. Well, on Thursday morning (1/27) while helping out with a Wetlands Program down in Explore the Wild I managed to catch two of the same species in a hoop net!


It was quite a surprise to find this little guy in my net along with the backswimmers and willow leaves. This is one of two Common Musk Turtles caught that day (10/27/11).

Both little stinkpots were released following the program.
