The feature image with this post is of either a terrapin or a turtle.
We were out walking locally near a pond close to home recently when we spotted it sunning itself on the fallen down tree.
Quite often with my Twitter account I use the hashtag #NatureIsAmazing.
We had a chat with a lady who was more local than us and we all marvelled at it’s ability to live in what looked like really muddy water.
Once we were home we did a bit of browsing to learn more about such a wonderful creature.
To our horror it’s unlikely to survive when the lake freezes over during winter.
We can only hope that it has a nice warm hiding hole somewhere around the banks as there’s practically no chance of rescuing it due to the huge size of the lake.
