Why did the Ornate cross the road?
About five miles away from Patagonia Lake I noticed a "rock" in the center of road that looked too round on top and flat on the bottom. Turned out to be an elusive Arizona Ornate Box Turtle. This guy needed a little help to cross the road safely. The monsoon season can bring out some of the best parts of the Sonoran Desert. It was a real treat to see this male Ornate as most folks will never see one of these alive in the wild. So watch out for pedestrians on your next trip down to the lake, some are hard to spot.
To learn more about Ornate Box Turtles visit this page:http://www.azgfd.gov/w_c/boxturtlewatch.shtml
Enjoy this short video of his safe release on the other side of the road. Cheers! ... See MoreSee Less
