The Rare Blue Turtle

So there we were this morning doing our beach patrol when all of sudden I saw it - I barked at it and Mom came over to see what it was. She smiled and told me it was a very rare baby blue turtle - otherwise known as "Blueish Plasticus Testudines (that means sea turtle)". Now Florida law says you must not touch or tamper with sea turtles so we left him on the beach and as the tide was coming in - we know he will soon be traveling the ocean waves - we wonder where he will turn up next?

Just as a side note - my foot is now completely healed - woo hoo! I just have to build up some more muscle in my leg and I will be back to galumphing in no time.

  9. Wow! What a find! Our Joanna found a yellow one of those on the Lake Ontario beach once. It was in the middle of winter too! We're so glad your foot has finally healed. Hooray!

  10. At first we thought it might be Bella's 'blue rock' that floated down the river. With all this rain, we're sure it's in the ocean by now. But on closer look, it is definitely a turtle. Wonder if it came to the beach to lay eggs...
