This has been an old post but I figured I would publish it anyway. I had been walking to get Gisselle off the school bus when I had noticed a weird little shape in the grass. I picked it up and it surely was a baby hatchling turtle. And just then he poked his little head out, so he was still alive. I was thinking a bird might have nabbed him from a nearby nest and flew off and dropped him in mid flight. There wasn’t any injury to the little guy. So I brought him home and have been feeding him for several weeks. And he is more active than ever.
Even our kitten Spooky doesn’t know what to make of him/
