Baby Turtle – Dead….

When I was out planting the new Mulberry Bush cutting that a friend gave me I came across a dead baby turtle…..he was upside down in a low growing flower bush. I don’t  know where he came from.  I did have a hole that something had dug near where I found him dead but thought it might be from a snake. In looking at the hole I don’t think it was big enough for a turtle.

I think this was a box turtle and read some information on them at Florida Box Turtles. I guess newborns do have “failure to thrive” maybe this is what happended to this little one.
