SO EXCITED- Turtles and toads!

pufftrinket(5MI)June 5, 2007

This week, Two turtles laid eggs rght in front of our bay window- One painted turtle, and one snapping turtle. DH built nest protection boxes, and we'll wait.

Any suggestions what else to do? should we mow around them or let the grass grow up?


Yesterday, our dirt driveway was ALIVE with hopping baby toads. At least 500 of them. Will they find their own way to the gardens, or can I relocate them to the different flowerbeds? I'm very interested in any suggestions.

Now how cool is that?!?
Your turtles will 'do their own thang'...LOL...that is, find water and a food source, as will your toads.
