    What a cute little thingy.

    Where did you find it? On the beach or at your house?

    It was at the house – pretty far from the water. We figure a seagull nabbed him, but he fell away…. far too small to have made it there on his own.

    Indeed – though now he’ll grow up to probably eat the ducks that also hatch nearby …

    your video is beautiful, I found a box turtle crossing the road away from the marsh this morning on my way to ShopRite. I managed to go over it and that is when i realized what it was. I turned around and placed it near the marsh and as I walked away it turned to the road again, towards houses. I picked it up and decided to show it to my girls, I brought it home. It is beautiful and it has a stumpy foot which tells me it already met with humans or animal that might have hurt it. We are in the process now of building it a habitat in our back yard as I encountered another one on my way home and by the time I was able to make a k-turn on us9 someone had gone over it and it lay feet up squashed on the road. I couldn't help but cry and that decided me to make a trip to the pet store and a little research on the net. Little did I know that people capture them and sell them sometimes illegally. My girls, (29 and 21) have fallen in love with Cricket, already christened. We would like to really give it an appropriate home. Do you think this is wrong and it should go back to nature, I am really afraid for its safety. Mimi Burde, Ocean Gate
