Welcome back! Gabby made a new friend since last month. Gabby was on his evening walk when he found something scurrying on the sidewalk. A turtle! Of all the places, this painted turtle was on a sidewalk facing a busy four-lane road in our city of Warren. Gabby's daddy picked up the turtle and took him home. Gabby wanted the turtle so bad. I think Gabby had turtle soup in mind. Gabby's daddy kept the turtle at home for a week until he could find the turtle a good home. Poor Gabby fell in love with this turtle: it's all Gabby could think of all week long.
The turtle was taken to his new home in Willow Marsh, a perfect location. Here is a picture of the turtle just as he was released in the marsh.
Gabby has recently developed a refined taste for bumble bees. His daddy doesn't approve of this diet though. Here are a few more pictures of Gabby on his walk and around the house.
