My mom saved this turtle

Looks like a mud turtle! Don't know what your mom did with it, but for what it's worth, they're aquatic.

They like crossing roads after rain.

I had one for a pet when I was a kid.

(I'm allergic to most warm blooded critters.)

I have a thing for turtles.

Wait a minute, I take that back. Is your mom still in Sonoma? If so, it's a western pond turtle. I'm pretty sure they are either threatened or endangered, so good thing for the turtle your mom was around.

Okay, so I'm a turtle geek.

Jim, I know a few turtle geeks and it is a Western Pond Turtle, she found it in a gravel parking lot and brought it to the reserviour behind the ranch. I think it's very very happy now. We have all sorts of orphan animals on the ranch. It's a true "funny farm:.
