Long Description:
While exploring the Black Mesa area near Kenton with Mouse Jockey we encountered this turtle - I am no biologist but it looks like a common box turtle - crossing Highway 325 (just a two lane blacktop) from west to east. We backed up and probably scared the poor thing to death, but got a few pictures and witnessed the turtle reach the other side of the road.

By chance we were sitting on the porch when we noticed little blandings in the same location we had seen the mother take 2 months earlier."
