    Mr 'T'

    I think Mr T is a female yellow eared slider but I don't know for sure. Mr T appeared during the feeding of ducks and now he comes right up to me so he doesn't have to compete with the ducks, marsh hens, and fish. Isn't he adorable! :jumping:

    Mr T eats bread :yesman:

    He lives in the canal at the end of our yard. There are two sliders who come to eat when I feed the ducks and Mr T is the larger of the two. I don't know why he is so friendly, the other slider keeps a safe distance. Mr T shows up 80% of the times I feed. I see bubbles, then his nose pops up, he makes eye contact and then he swims directly to me. It is very nice every time I see him, it makes me giggle out loud. In the earlier picture he is taking bread from my husband. :ssmile:

    Two sliders live here but only the big one is friendly.

    AJD1 its pretty but dont touch that one. The hickory tussock moth caterpillar has a subtle venom on its whiskers. Its not horrible but causes an allergic reaction with minor swelling, itching, nausea.

    These 2 young raccoons were exploring one of our trees in the middle of the day. They and their mother visit a couple times a month (always at night though) and eat all the cat food and muddy up the water dish. Unusual to see them during the day.

    Snow is relatively rare here.
    When it comes, the local colonies of monk parakeets make an interesting contrast.

    Way to tell with Turtles is to look at their plastron (part of shell covering the belly area). I know, you'd have to pick up Mr. T... :ropeman:

    Males usually have a concave plastron to make it easier to mount females when mating. Females have a flat or even convex plastron.

    Hell, just CLICK HERE. Easier to Link than explain.

    And please get back and let us know what's up with Mr. T...

    Tnx gzb! That's a good ID chart. Eastern Box turtles are easy to sex but I'm not as familiar with these water turtles. In a previous picture you can see Mr. T has long claws and a notch under his neck so maybe he IS male. I don't have enough experience or another turtle to compare so I can't be sure.

    I now think he is a yellow bellied slider (not yellow eared) because yellow belly habitat includes South Florida, and the size fits better. Mr. T is about the size of the ducks or about 10 inches, the size of a dinner plate.

    I think it would ruin our relationship if I picked him up. I could net him and get a close look but I think I would rather keep his friendship. :bwah:

    I wonder if he and the other little were pets released into the canal. :idunno:
