|River Turtles are always sunning themselves on the rocks. I do not have a picture of them as they scattered whenever I approached.
During their breeding season the female turtles climb ashore at night and dig holes into which they lay their eggs. However, they are met by hoards of hungry raccoons who dig out the holes and eat the eggs. (YUMMY!!)
This has been going on since ancient times. All our attempts to thwart the raccoons have failed.
