Per many requests, here are baby pictures. She is with Mama, Claudette Colbert for size reference. Claudette is about the size of a grapefruit that is flattened on one side. Baby would not come out for the pictures - sorry. And Claudette was determined to leave. So I had to be quick.
We are contemplating creating a turtle nursery in the flowerbed outside of the fence. So she hasn't gone to the country yet. At the house we used to live at, we had a turtle nursery and they lived in it until they were as big as biscuits, which was usually their 3rd summer. Until they are that big they are tasty morsels for large birds. The nursery was not moveable when we came here. And Captain Jack, our male decided to skip town. I guess his name fit. So we didn't think there would be more babies. But sometimes the eggs can stay viable for a couple of seasons before they hatch. So.....
Anyway, its too late in the day for any face pics today. They are already starting to snuggle in for the night. Baby is staying in a hotel called The Clay Flower Pot on the Front Porch temporarily. I won't be here tomorrow cuz I'M GOING TO SEE THE LION KING PLAY!!!!!! Excuse me. I'm terribly excited.
Anyway, the point is, I will try to get some pictures of baby's face Monday. I usually don't name the babies cause then I get too attached. They have no handicaps so I like to let them go in the country when they are bigger. So she will just have to be "Baby".
