Why Did the Turtle Cross the Road? To Get to Little Silver!
A big turtle was trying to cross Prospect Avenue on Friday afternoon and a reader shares pictures of its rescue.
Little Silver resident Nora Monaghan shared the following with Patch:
"I witnessed the rescue of an "ancient" muddy turtle on Prospect Avenue around 1 p.m. on Friday. The turtle was in the middle of the street at first, then a landscaper carried him back to the nature trail water. Isn't he cute?"
Then around 7:30 p.m. on Friday, I was driving down Point Road and there was a bunch of boys down in the creek looking at some very large turtles (more than one)."
Can any readers fill us in on the type of turtle Nora saw and what might inspire him to try to cross a busy street?
