Itsy Bitsy Terrapin

MCM Terp

NJSEA Naturalist Drew McQuade came upon this little guy on the Mill Creek Marsh Trail on Tuesday. Drew writes:

Grabbed these shots of a young terrapin on the Mill Creek trail Tuesday, a first of the year for me.  It’s way too early for it to be from a new nest, so this terp likely over-wintered in the nest from last season.  It was sluggish and dry, so we moved it to a better spot on the edge of the marsh. Also saw a few garter snakes out and about.
