WESTERN POND TURTLE IN WINTER: Who’s hiding under the leaves? Peekaboo! It’s Emmy, the western pond turtle! Emmy was exercising in our Redwood Grove on a chilly afternoon and decided to bury herself to warm up. Did you know western pond turtles will stay buried in the winter? This is called overwintering, a form of hibernation! They also will use land to nest and travel between water sources. So if you happen to see a pond turtle on land, it’s most likely just traveling! Sometimes a turtle can get lost on a busy road or stranded in a yard. The best thing you can do is move it out of danger to a safe place as close to where you found it as possible. But if you ever do come across a truly injured turtle, bring it to our wildlife hospital for rehabilitation!
