Our thanks to avid Post reader, Mel Smith, who replied via email regarding our “City Turtle Goes Country”. Mel said the rescued turtle in town on Maple Street, is actually a Box Turtle. He just wanted us to know Box Turtles are NON-aquatic turtles, which apparently means they can’t swim.

That may explain why the turtle sank when he was put in the pond. Just kiddin’ Mel. The turtle was placed next to the pond to make sure he had a good water source on a very hot day.

Thanks for the info.
