We awoke this morning to find this huge soft shell turtle in a puddle of rain water on our patio. We have been so parched here in Central Texas and stock tanks are drying up. We did get about 1/2 inch of wonderful rain yesterday. This big fella must have been looking for water. He had about a pound of mud on his back...must have been a heavy load to carry. I'll say this...he was centainly determined.
