When I was a child in Kingsville, Texas, turtles were backyard pests. They were everywhere.
In my eighteen years in San Diego I have never seen a turtle in the wild…..
…..until this afternoon!
I’m not 100% certain but I think it’s a common box turtle. Since they don’t occur naturally in California, I’m thinking that it might have been someone’s pet that either escaped or was abandoned. I was torn between leaving him and taking him home, but since he was in a protected nature preserve, I left him. I hope I made the right decision.
