The Smiling Turtle (And Smiling Kyle)
The western crew came across this female Blanding's Turtle at our Wisconsin site. They handed her over to Nathan Byer of UW Madison who will give her a transmitter and add her to his ongoing study. The central crew came across a Blanding's crossing the road in Michigan the night before and Henry saw one in Ohio a few weeks ago. It's nice to keep coming across this species that's being considered for listing under the Endangered Species Act.
