First Reptile of 2011

8:21 PM


As I said in my last post the birds are back, and this of course is a sure sign that spring is here. However, yesterday I saw an even bigger tell-tail sign that spring is here and warmer weather is on its way. Walking past my local lake I spotted a Painted Turtle (Chrysemys picta) below the ice slowly swimming around. This is the first reptile I have seen in Ontario this year and it is a sure sign that the seasons are changing.

Happy Spring!
