As the temperatures start to rise, so do our hibernating animal friends. Turtles are on the move, including on the roads. Many turtles are severely injured or killed on roads every year. Even if their shells are crushed, turtles can remain alive for days or even weeks in agonizing pain because they have such slow metabolisms. If you see a turtle on the road while you are out for a walk- take action! Be sure the road is clear and carefully move the turtle in the direction he is going BUT be careful if it is a snapping turtle. Snapping turtles can snap at fingers, arms, so take care or contact a local rehabilitator.

 

Staff Josh Palumbo feeds Maizie Our Program Snake and shares a few quick facts about snakes! Got questions? Leave your questions and comments and we will give you answers.
