The Painted Turtle Mystery:
This is Leo. The other day when we were hiking we found a half-eaten painted turtle.
It was really cool and I wanted to save it for a treasure but my parents said it would get smelly so we threw it over our fence after a while.
Our theories about what ate it are:
1. A heron (we were in a marsh where there were a lot of heron nests)
2. A raccoon (we live in NH and there are a lot of raccoons)
3. A fox (there are a lot of foxes here)
We really want to know what happened to this turtle. What are YOUR theories? Please share them here!!
Thanks for reading!
