In my neck of the woods, this is a pretty common sign. Turtles rarely run out in front of cars, but many are run over while trying to cross the highway. Just a gentle reminder to drivers to avoid them when they can. This little painted turtle (yellow on the cheeks and red on the shell) was crossing the cottage road on Sunday. As a kid I used to pick them up carry them across the road, which is how I know that they empty their bladders when you pick them up......which is intended to cause you to put them down again! Now I hold them at arm's length....or just take their picture....Thanks for looking!
