As happens from time to time, folks bring us injured wildlife to see if we can help. This turtle was found in Lanesville after being hit by a car as she tried to cross the road (…to get to the other side!).
She sustained a significant crack on the top part of her shell (ie carapace). Nonetheless, she was quite stable and active, proving just how resilient she was and how well protected she was by her shell.
She has since been spotted in her new home swimming around and sunning herself like the good old days 🙂
