The Injured Turtle in the Flower Bed - Nature 134

We found the injured turtle in our flower bed few days ago. Poor turtle. That one may be too badly injured but it shouldn't suffer.

Obviously, the turtle can still crawl, and the turtle still pokes his out of his shell, so still alive.

It is a small turtle. You might wonder why the critter in flower's bed, it is because the critter eats:
- flowers
- vegetables
- and fruit.

First, we contacted Fish and Wildlife department, but no respond.

Then we called LSU small animal hospital and an exotic pet vet, unfortunately we have not heard back from them.

Finally, an animal rescue and rehab gave some recommendations:
1) 90% of the time the best thing to do is let an animal heal on its own.
2) Protect from ants and house-flies.
3) Provide water and food and shade.

  1. Poor turtle! I hope it will heal on its own.
    Perhaps you could keep it inside the house where it is safe from predators until he recovers.
    Please keep us update.

    Hugs and blessings!

  4. Povera tartaruga. È capitata una cosa simile anche ad una tartaruga di un mio conoscente... È uscita in strada ed è stata investita da un'auto. Per fortuna le ferite non erano gravi, infatti, è guarita nel giro di poche settimane. È stata disinfettata la ferita con acqua ossigenata.

    Gostei desta que aqui trazes.
    Deixo os meus votos de feliz semana!

  8. Me dio pena la tortuga , pobrecita, y si siente dolor,
    El caparazon es dificil de curar, los animales se curan
    Con su saliva lamiendo la herida, ella no
    Creo que se cure sola, nececita ayuda.
    Abrazos y te dejo un 💋🌷

  12. Mantenerla en observación y si se le observa heridas, mantenerlas desinfectado. Cierto , animales como las tortugas se curan, naturalmente, heridas leves. Un abrazo. Carlos

  22. I hate to see an injured animal but always feel it's best to leave them alone. Your flowerbed is very showy and gorgeous this year!
