>>I haven't posted here in years, but wanted to share this photo. We rescued this little girl off of the highway in the high desert chaparral of west Texas while on a business trip. There were intermittent thunderstorms in the area and within just a few minutes the turtles were all over the roads.

>>It just amazes me that box turtles can live in an area that is so dry. The bottom photo is literally right at my feet as I took the first photo, just looking down as I released her. We saved about 10 that afternoon and saw about 5 more fatalities.

>>If you walked along the grass and blindly grabbed out at the air, your hands would literally be filled with all of the jumping locusts, no doubt a significant food source.

>>Breathtaking place!
