Florida Softshell



They may night be the most attractive looking turtles, but the Florida Softshell Turtle is interesting to watch. I saw these two hanging out near the edge of Lake Ella looking for a handout.

This will probably be my last post for the year as I am spending some holiday time with my grandkids. I hope everyone enjoys whichever holiday you are celebrating and I will see you in the New Year!

Linking to Saturday's Critters.
