Three friends

They are a surprise for me. I have seen them in the lake called Éger-völgyi-tó, in mountain Mecsek. The lake is an artificial lake with a surface of 15000 square meter, built some 45 years ago. How did these turtles get here? Upwards the lake there is only a dark narrow valley with a minor stream in it. Below the lake the stream crosses the urban area of Pécs in through 3 km, and only after that can we find some marshy area

Wonderful surprise ..

Yes, I have also experienced turtles in Arizona. It never ceases to amaze me how many
different (varieties) of turtles are known to
exist in the World.

Re: Wonderful surprise ..

I checked them yesterday (before receiving your comment) as well as this morning, but I didn't see them. Though I saw them many times in this spring. I hope nothing happened to them. 3 weeks ago there was a huge flood here. The biggest flood that I have ever seen here

Geez, I never thought about that ...

I'm sure Nature always has a way of bouncing
back after a natural disaster.

Maybe they found a nice warm cave.

Re: Wonderful surprise ..

Yesterday I have seen them again at their usual place on the trunk. So no worry, no problem with them :-)

Re: Wonderful surprise ..

Could it be...that these turtles were abandoned by some owner? I remember an explicit article Roberto (chaberton) had written about this sort of thing...unfortunately the article is gone, along with all the rest of Roberto's first class material...
