My husband knows I always stop to pick up turtles I find on the side of the road. I have been told other people simply move them to the side of the road and continue on their way. But, I always bring them home. So my husband, who was out on a solo excursion, brought this little guy home for me. I had hoped to have a studio buddy for a little while, but he was having none of it. He wins for being the most shy reptile I have met. This picture shows what he looked like most of the time I saw him. I would leave for a while and he would scoot off and hide somewhere. But as soon as I brought him back out he would clam up. So I eventually gave up hopes of a more revealing photo-shoot and put him out side. True to form, when no one was looking, he ran away.
