Who knew?

So check this pic out, it's a baby turtle that we found near my dad's house in Hawkesbury. It hatched from the creek next to his house and was walking dangerously close to the road.




It was honestly really cute. My dad said there were dozens of them crawling around there the other day.

But here's my question: I never would have guessed that turtles hatch in the Fall. I would have thought they were born in the springtime like many other animals. Your thoughts?

You can get salmonella poisoning from turtles!

DOH!


Good thing we passed on the *cough* 'soup' my dad was offering for dinner that night.
