The Day Yurtle the Turtle Stopped By For A Visit

Yesterday, my husband was looking out our back sliding door, and there just so happened to be a turtle roaming in our back yard. My hubby, who is full of all kinds of facts, informed me that this is a gopher turtle. I will let you in on a secret, it looked nothing like a gopher :) Anywho, I prefer to call our turtle, Yurtle. Yurtle had one goal in get out of our back yard. He was quite speedy if you ask me, and definitely would have won the race against the hare~ hands down. I thought I would share a little video of Yurtle....promise me you will ignore my mindless prattle.

I know. I know. I am a complete and total wimp! Before you judge me too harshly, I need to tell you that Yurtle HISSED. Jonathan tried to stop him so that Tyler could get a better look and Yurtle hissed and then plodded on.  I will let you in on one last secret, I think the hubby was a smidge frightened of Yurtle too. ha. That about sums up hissing Yurtles visit to our back yard.

  1. So, is he out of your back yard now? I am surprised how fast it moved.
