When What to my Wondering Eyes did Appear?

Song - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


A turtle the size of a dinner plate.

Right in our backyard creek!

Mr. B and Andy spotted him several days ago and I caught my first glimpse of him yesterday but he plopped into the creek before I could get my camera.

Unfortunately he/she is not native to our creek, that would be a Western Pond Turtle.  Ours is a Red-eared Slider which is the kind of turtle you may have had as a child that is about the size of an Oreo cookie.  Someone must of released their pet into Las Trampas Creek at some point.

I think I'll name him Terry...........Terry Terrapin !
