The Birds and the Bees, and Turtles

Spring is in the air, and the turtle’s mind turns to, well, chasing tail.  In this exclusive video  taken by HAT’s Land Care Coordinator Todd Carnahan, 2 male Western Painted Turtles try their luck with an adult female.  After being spurned, the males engage in combat to prove their worth, before being frightened from the scene by ducklings.

 

Beware the ducklings!
