I've read that the leading cause of death for turtles is being run over while crossing the roadways! I also read that these turtles are easily stressed. I'd be stressed too if I knew at any moment a vehicle could run me over!
Pop and I have seen an increasing number of box turtles in recent days. He says they are training for the Annual Four Sisters Farm Family Fourth of July Turtle Race!
