Turtles and Turkeys

Pictures 1 and 2, a "Red Ear Slider" swimming below the dam. I had one of these as a pet when I was kid. It was legal to buy them 50 years ago and mine was about the size of a silver dollar. This guy here was bigger than a frying pan. They are protected now and illegal to own.

Pictures 3 and 4 are of a "Cinnamon Colored Turkey Hen." All the locals here have nicknamed her, "Cinny." This is an unusual coloration as most of the wild turkeys here are a grayish color. She had 4 babies with her, but they stayed in the weeds and I never could get a pic of them.
