I was feeding my aquatic turtles at 8:00PM when I noticed some activity in the Florida Box Turtle pen nearby.



This turtle was busy digging a hole. First she'd scoop out dirt with one back foot until she got tired, then she'd switch feet.



This went on for quite some time. Before I knew it, it was 9:00. But the reptile just kept on slowly but surely digging.



It was pretty exhausting just watching. This friendly neighborhood deer came by to keep me company for awhile.



By 10:00PM I was ready to take a nap. I seriously needed a cup of coffee. But that turtle just kept on digging.



A little while later this raccoon stopped by and was watching me watching the turtle from the deck.



Finally, at 10:15 - an egg!



Then she quickly covered it in dirt to make it look like nothing ever happened.
