Camera Critters

 
Posted by Picasa


This turtle was trying to cross the road near my house, so I stopped and hurried him along so he wouldn't get run over. To see more cute critters from around the world, don't miss Camera Critters.

You have turtles near home?
Today I was in ZOO, so I saw many critters :) (But, no turtles... I don't know why... Probably, I missed a reptile pavilion.)

That's amazing there you can see some turtle near your home. You really had a good heart stopping by to make him safe. That's great.

You have wild turtles there? Cool! I don't think I've seen a turtle this yellow before. Glad you helped him out. :)

That's a cute little fellow! Glad you have stopped! :-)

Bless you Lois, for caring about the turtle on the road. When we lived in Georgia, we were constantly on the look out for critters on the road, and frequently stopped to move them off. Not everyone is so kind.

I'm sure he was very thankful that you helped him out. Cute picture :)

They take their time, don't they? I was at a Sealife centre the other day and one was swimming around :)

Oh he's a cute little fellow! They recently found a huge turtle (tortoise?) in the flower bed at our local Montessori school. I imagine he is now the new mascot. I just hope he doesn't eat all of their landscaping! Kat

Thank you for saving the turtle.

At night on the short drive from Tamarindo to our condo in Playa Langosta I have to be careful not to run over crabs walking across the road. I got some photos of the recently that I will post in the future.

The road surface looks like mosaic :-)

Bravo! I'm glad you gave him a hand. I always seem to encounter snapping turtles in the street near my place, which I don't dare want to touch for fear of losing a finger.

Nice shot! I've done the same thing. They move so slowly and can be hard to see. Kudos to you!

That is one fine turtle! We're turtle rescuers on the highway too.
