Wife & I went riding at aoaa and saved a box turtle

Recommended Posts

3rd time riding the  atv’s there , such a great place to ride. We’re buzzing  down a trail and and I see this little guy in the middle. Glad I missed him, we gave him a helping hand out of harms way.

Cool pics, looks like a fun place to ride! I grew up outside of Pittsburgh, we used to catch these guys all the time as kids while playing in the woods of Monroeville PA.

They may be common, Rob, but I have never seen one in my 70 years and I tend to pay attention to such things...Nice find  !!

They live their whole lives in a small.area ,if moved they will wander aimlessly till they die. Never saw one in wild and I've seen alot of "rare " creatures

Same, I'm always actively looking for them and have found maybe two my whole life. And you know when I was born!
