There Is No Place Like Home – Turtle Homing Instincts

We have three local turtle species that are often seen in yards, on roads and when we are hiking or fishing. They are the Eastern Box Turtle, Red Eared Slider, and Common Snapping Turtle. Removing them from there territory can cause confusion and even death.
