Bog Turtles and Tussocks

Bog Turtles can be found in the eastern U.S. from Georgia to New York, not that one is easy to find. Surveys by trained biologists often come up empty. It has become a very rare species with population declines estimated around 90% over the last century. Still, the first observation of a Bog Turtle on iNaturalist.org was by someone who found it in the mouth of a dog (and he rescued it!).
