Last weekend as we were walking with our dogs at the Row River Nature Park, I noticed that one of the turtle logs was wet while all the others were dry. We stopped for a second to observe and saw this:
I’ve never seen anything like it before, and hadn’t really thought about how the turtles can change the equilibrium of the floating logs.
Sorry, this isn’t the best video. The sun was shining on my camera screen so I didn’t get it focused on the best turtle. That, and we couldn’t stop laughing. But it is so unusual, I wanted to share it anyway.
Update evening of April 20:
It turns out the turtles are still on a roll down at the Row River Nature Park. We took this video this morning.
