How did this:
an ornate box turtle get into this:
Ducky's water bucket?
I went out to feed and water the critters last night. When I got to Ducky's pen and peered over the fence looking in her water bucket there was the shell of an ornate box turtle floating in her half-filled water bucket. Then the water and shell moved a little bit. I quickly retrieved the bucket from the pen and dumped it out. The turtle didn't seen too worse for the wear and headed for a rock to hide under.
So how did that turtle get in her water bucket? The bucket is twice as high as the turtle was long and where would a duck grab hold of a turtle to plop it in the bucket? I know Ducky is not your average duck but still.
Ducky looks very similar to this one. I guess I need one of those wildlife camcorders to see what is going on in my backyard. But then again maybe I don't! Did you every read 'Tuesday'?
Have a good day!
