This is a good one...last summer one day there was a turtle on my front lawn. It was (I guess) a painted turtle (had a tinge of red on the edge of his shell), and was close to 10" long. So hubby took it to a stream to let it go. Then one day this summer, I was walking up my driveway, and there was a turtle in front of me, walking up the driveway too. Same type, only a bit smaller, and again hubby took it to a stream. Could it possibly be that we are on a 'turtle migration path' or that someone is letting them go? Just a question.
