Notes

The turtle in is a Eastern Box Turtle. It was in the road on my way to my finace's house in Cherokee County, AL near the AL/GA state line. There was another Eastern Box turtle about the same size about 10 yards up the road that had been hit and crushed and I did not want this little girl to meet the same fate.

The snake in the picture was found in my fiance's house. We don't know how it got in the house, but it is an old house (built 1910) He has had another bit larger gray rat snake in his house before, but that was before I met him.
