Snapping Turtle

I snapped the picture to get the baby turtle, and captured some toddler-orange-eaters as well.

The sex of the baby snapping turtles depends on the temperature at which the eggs are incubated.

He (or she, who knows what the incubated temp was?) is now happily swimming around our kiddie pool, munching on reptile & amphibian food.
We also ended up with a little froggie friend. :) Oh, the joys of a boys' world.
Blog search tip: If you are interested in what we've studied before, you can click on the homeschool label, or the links to the right. If you are looking for information on a particular subject/ animal/ craft, then use the search bar on the right-hand. Hope that help the gals who emailed me. :-)
