Thanks for the information and photo. My older neighbour has one growing in his garden and after 15 years is finally flowering maybe the extra snow and the contining earthquakes have had something to do to it.

He's a painted/northern map turtle, genus Graptemys sp. I had one for 17 years, his name was smokey and I miss him so! I found him when I was four and he was exactly that size! Not much is known about their life history or habits, I had quite a bit of trouble finding information when he started to get sick. They are absolutely beautiful organisms and your pictures were wonderful! Thank you for bringing back some good memories.

Hi William - thanks for the clarification. Locally, in the Ozarks, a lot of people call any land turtle a "terrapin" and I've wondered about that since the guide book I have only calls them box turtles. I'll look up terrapins and read about them. We are a long way from salt water here in the hills, so I don't imagine there are any true terrapins near. Thanks again.

Lol sry was jus browsing and saw the note, terrapins are actually aquatic turtles that live in brakish or salt water :) the 3 classes of testudines are terrestrial, aquatic and terrapin and the box turtle falls under the terrestrial tortoise. Random trivial fact of the day. Take care

Yipes! I know Pat's family have chased several people off their property that were hunting there. I've heard about the big black cats. History Channel's Monsterquest did a show about them. Most people equate the BBC sighting to the white big foot sightings that have been reported around Eureka, too. Me, I'm a believer, lol. Too many people have reported seeing them for them all to be made up or otherwise wrong.

I remember seeing red foxes on your road off 62, circa 1980s. And bears, but only out toward the lake. Never seen/heard bullets whizzing by me though - - heard hunters off in the woods around east mtn in Eureka though, and that's pretty close to "civilization" for random shooting. (Maybe someone was just target shooting)

Doesn't look like a baby - not with that thick, muscular look to it. Looks like a serious customer.

I didn't identify this snake because I'm not sure if it is what I call a Water Moccasin (or Cottonmouth) or not. I've been told by a snake expert that there are nonvenomous water snakes that are often mistaken for Moccasins.

Maybe someone on here will know...

Mr. Trahan used to keep some ringnecks in the backroom of the Biology room. When we finished our work we were allowed to go back and play with them, lol.

In response to: Common Snapping Turtle

We have been seeing the common box turtles a lot here lately on the county road home. Last summer saw an alligator turtle in the lake that was HUGE! Didn't point it out to the Grandkids who would have had a conimption fit!

You really do write beautifully and make me terribly homesick for the Ozarks.
