Look what I found!

This morning when I walked out side to let the chooks out I walked over what I thought was a bit of

dog poo. Then I noticed it moved!
 Closer inspection revealed that it was a tiny little long neck turtle. Isnt it cute. Its so tiny Im amazed I even saw it.
I had to wait a while for it to poke its head out then I had to sneak up on it to take this shot.
After taking it to the boys for a show and tell, I put it in our dam. It was heading in that direction only on his own he would of had to dodge the chickens and the geese. At least now he has a fighting chance.
what strange and wonderful creatures have you found in your backyard?
see ya
