Three Toed Box Turtle

Yesterday, I met up with a friend and we went to Burr Oak Woods Nature Center to walk the trails.  This fella greeted us as we started our trek.

While looking up information on this turtle I discovered that the three toed box turtle is the official reptile for the state of Missouri.

All Riled Up

I let the dogs outside after a long day cooped up on the house due to the heat.  It only took them a couple of minutes to get into mischief.  They were barking like crazy so I went out to see what all the fuss was about.

Thankfully it was just a good sized black snake and not a copperhead.

Hiding in Plain Sight

We went to Glen’s mothers house yesterday evening and this fella was sitting on her front porch light.  Guess he was waiting for night to fall so he could partake in bugstravaganza.

Tiny Toad

This little toad was so cute, but he didn’t want to have anything to do with posing for a picture.

Lounging Lizard

Found this five lined skink lounging on a burned log in the fire pit. Will have to thoroughly check the fire pit next time we use it. Don’t want to burn up any critters.

Smart Toad

I got home from the gym the other evening and this big fat fella had parked himself under the motion light by the garage door.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
