Tiny Turtle Found

Today a tiny turtle was found at Coventry Lake.  It was spotted trying to cross the pathway in the open space.  It was a far distance from a water source so he was picked up and moved to a nearby water source.  The tiny turtle appears to be a common box turtle.  You can see it in the hand of a toddler.  Box turtles are a numerous turtle in Pennsylvania.  However, they are not the most common turtle.  The red eared slider is the most common turtle in PA and the most commonly sold turtle in the pet store.
