I was taking my dog for a walk tonight when I found a turtle trying to dig a hole to lay eggs on the side of the road. It\'s a small, gravel road but people drive pretty fast and I thought I could help her find a better spot. I have a large but shallow pond in my back yard (I have a 3 1/2 acre lot) and there\'s a creek about half a mile away. Half of my pond is already dried out and quite sandy so I figured maybe she would try to lay her eggs there instead. I didn\'t know what kind she is, so I checked out a few websites and I think she\'s a Blandings turtle. The size and general description fits, although I didn\'t get a good look at her plastron, I didn\'t want to bother her more than necessary. Does anyone know if there\'s another kind of turtle in this area (south-eastern Ontario, Can) with a bright, yellow throat and spotted shell?
