Friday In the Bog

Okay, maybe not IN the bog, but definitely with the baby bog turtles at my zoo.

Remember the bright yellow neck rings? Here’s why they’re such good camouflage.

They look just like the play of light on the water, don’t they?


Ever wonder what bog turtles eat? A little bit of everything, really. At this stage, they love insects. What’s wrong with this picture?!

To give you an idea of how tiny these turtle hatchlings are, that’s a cricket on the left.


How in the world can a turtle so small eat something so large? Turns out, quite easily.


Excuse the shaky bit of film work at the end of the video. I’ve tried to trim it, but the site isn’t cooperating.

Have a great weekend! Buckle your seat belts and prepare for the cute. Next week, I’ll share what I’ve been up to.

  1. I may be getting hooked on these animal videos, high quality or not. I posted a hilarious video of fruit flies mating, to Barry White last week… and I’ve re-watched it more than once. Hi, my name is Dawn and I watch animal videos… Cute post, really enjoyed it!

A penny for your thoughts! And by penny, I mean a warm-fuzzy in your heart.
