Loggerheads

So as I’m sure I’ve talked about before, when I was a kid growing up, I always loved box turtles.  In fact, just this summer, we ran into a couple of painted turtles on our vacation (for the first time in years) and it brought back some great memories.

Fast forward to today and while I still love them, I’ve also grown to love their relative, the sea turtles. That’s in part due to reading the book Voyage of the Turtle by Carl Safina, so seeing this article the other day made me very happy.

The article is entitled “Loggerhead sea turtles nesting in record numbers in Southeast” by Mary Jo DiLonardo over at the Mother News Network. To me, it’s just cool that they’ve be around since the dinosaurs and what kid doesn’t love dinosaurs!?

Baby sea turtles

As someone who just loves sea turtles, this story is truly amazing, thanks to the many hours of work from countless volunteers. The article is entitled “Baby turtles officially return to the beaches of Mumbai after largest beach clean up in history” by Perry Miller over at Inhabitat. How cool is that?!

Sea turtles, box turtles

So as I’ve said many times before, turtles are one of my favorite, if not my favorite animal and one that shaped many of my early childhood memories. They were my earliest pet’s, though they always seemed to escape.

So whenever I find an article on turtles, be it sea turtles or box turtles, it’s a pretty safe bet I’ll post the article. Tonight’s article is entitled “Paleo Profile: Martin’s Sea Turtle” by Brian Switek over at Scientific American blog Laelaps. Who know’s, with summer here in the midwest already, maybe I’ll come across an article on box turtles one of these days.

Baby turtles

Now yes, turtles have always been one of my favorite animals. Then there is the issue of migration involved and also that these are baby sea turtles, it just doesn’t get much better. Add to this story that it takes place up north, only makes it intriguing.

The article is entitled “100 Baby Sea Turtles Hatched in Maryland and Made Their Way to the Sea” by Noel Kirkpatrick over at Mother News Network. Don’t forget to watch the video too. If you want to read more about these beautiful animals, check out Voyage of the Turtle by Carl Safina.

Turtles

As my kids can attest to, I love turtles. From the times I use to have them as pets when I was a kid to now with a small collection of them sitting on my window sill in the bedroom. So when I came across this story, it was a given that I would post it.

The story is entitled “Man Helps Sea Turtle Swim Off Into the Sunrise” by Noel Kirkpatrick over at the Mother Nature Network. Watching the turtle is incredible and the sunset is amazing.

Box turtles

Reading this story took me back to the days when we use to have box turtles for pets. While we never seemed to have them very long, the memories of those turtles have always been good.

So this article about a vet who took care of a turtle with a cracked shell was a good reminder of those times. The article is entitled “Vet Reunites with Turtles Years after Saving it” by Russell McLendon over at the Mother Nature Network. Good memories.
