First Turtle-selfie


turtle-selfie

This photo, taken by publisher Lois Allen, is the very first known turtle-selfie taken by a person. This turtle was spotted crossing the road on Ritchie Avenue in Nelson Township just last week. It probably didn’t need any help, but Allen wanted to get the “scoop” on everyone else. Unfortunately, she does not have a “smart phone” and cannot work her phone/camera… so she improvised by using a regular camera!

Big Ben to the rescue


OUT-Turtle-save-Ben-Robbins

Each spring and summer The Post asks readers to help turtles safely cross the road. Ben Robbins Jr., of Big Ben’s Tires in Sand Lake, did just that when he recently spotted this painter turtle sun bathing in the middle of Church Rd. just outside of Howard City. The turtle ran and hissed, but Ben got him to the side of the road where he would be safe.

Thanks, Ben, you are now an honorary member of the Post Turtle Rescue Club!

Remember, if you see a turtle trying to cross the road, you only need to help them to the other side, in the way they were traveling, and please be safe while doing it. And never try to pick up a snapping turtle!
