Wood Turtle Sighting

ECHO's Environmental Exhibit Specialist Shannon Kane enjoyed the sun this weekend, fishing with her mother, aunt, and grandmother.

Shannon's grandmother got a bite no one was expecting - a male wood turtle ended up on her line!

While Shannon spends her days with the three wood turtles that live at ECHO, she said she had never seen one in the wild.

Lucky for this little guy Shannon is an animal care expert and managed to remove the hook. She said he received only minor damage... and he posed for a mini photo shoot.

Shannon said she was going to report the sighting to State Herpetologist Jim Andrews. If you see something rare and interesting in your travels, make sure you do the same!
