We found this turtle on a very rainy day. He was apparently looking to relocate. So we helped him out. We wanted to get him away from road traffic so we took him to the junior high school down the road and released him between the football field and creek.

He was just going about his business. Like he has lived at our house for years.

Once he started moving, he could go pretty fast.
