Made a quick trip to Lucca’s botanical gardens this afternoon. The fun sight were the turtles sunning themselves on the water lily leaves. Here are some photos that will make you smile. This last turtle that is lying on the leaf like a dog with his legs splayed out the back was only about 5 inches long. I tried to look up what kind of turtles these are and I think they are European pond turtles; emys orbicularis , If this is wrong and someone knows please put it in the comments.
