OH my he's tiny! Cute little guy. Nice photos!
I just love these little turtles....
so cute, great shots, i thought you built a white box for sure when i saw this. glad he has a pond to get in now that you had rain.
Cute little guy! I would probably have peed in your hand, too, if I was a little thing and you so big! :-)
Supercute! I once owned red-eared turtle, but he passed away many years ago...
oh cute...funny...on thursday Rooster was barking at the fence...which he rarely does...hubby went over to see what the commotion was...there was a turtle between our fence and our neighbors...a big turle...like dinner plate size...it finally backed up and went back to the neighbors yard...we think it might be a pet...
Sweet, so tiny & cute.
I'm glad you added the shots of him in your hand, as without that perspective I thought he was much larger. Love your photos of his armor - such beautiful detail, and fun to study.
Sweetness!!! I love the second shot with his little head watching your every move! :)
even turtles can't get away from the paparazzi!
Why is it that they always have to pee in your hand??? LOL! Hope it survives!
So adorable!! I would love to see one myself :))
Great find! Love to see a row of sliders sunning on a log in the middle of the pond.
What a cute little guy!
How very sweet. I remember when we could buy painted "pet" turtles and kept them in flat jars. Then someone realized they could carry disease, or, perhaps the turtles spread that rumor so we would leave them alone!
How lucky that you spotted him! Wonderful photos. Thank you for helping him make it to the pond :)
that's about the size Big Mama was when our son brought her home after fishing her out of a pond on a golf course. Her shell is about 11" now front to back.
Oh, lucky him!! What delightful photos! I've never seen one quite this small! Hope you both enjoy the day!!
He's a cutie!
Sweet little thing. One doesn't realize how tiny it is until you put it in your hand.
nice pattern and colour in the shell of this wee thingenjoy your dayPeter
Did you skip him like a rock or serve him with lettuce and tomato? ;)
Ha. A few years and about 20 more pounds and you've got yerself a mighty fine soup.JUST KIDDIN'!
Too bad you couldn't paint some kind of mark on him to maybe identify him in the future! I can't think of anything that would last long enough.
How awesome. I am glad you did that. It is tiny. That is one of the things I love about back there seeing all of the turtles.
adorable...nature is a wonder
Cute little guy!
Such a sweet and precious critter! We used to have one..
Love it. Turtle models! Who would have thought. :-)
Love the picture of him in your hand...looks like he is peeking at you.
That is so cool! He is a tiny little thing. Can't believe you spotted him.
Awww! May he live a long and happy life!! :)xo Catherine
He is really a little baby.
OH, what a sweet little thing.
Nice save. How do you know the names of all these things around your place?
Awwww! I'm in love. What a cutie!
So cute!Great photos!
Dearest Theresa,Oh, we've held those babies in our hands too. So cute. In our pond, Pieter put a plank and sometimes four or five babies sun-bathe on it...Wishing you a lovely weekend.Love,Mariette
Awwwwwwwwwww. I used to have one for a pet, but I think he would have been happier in your pond. Here in OR red eared turtles are taking over the native species, so it isn't legal to keep them.Your little friend is a beauty.
Your pond is priceless -- it bring you so much wonderful and varied wild life.
Now that IS tiny! I hope he has a wonderful life. :)
What a cute baby!
Using a hand for comparison purposes is wise and works!
Wow! How tiny and cute little turtle... You are so kind on him :)
WASH YOUR HANDS lolHes adorable! i love how you captured his "greenness" by using a light background - genius!
Oh what a sweetie....xxx..
A genius photographer and a turtle saver to boot. Thanks Superwoman for sharing!! (He's adorable, even if ...)
He is so cute! I don't think I've ever seen a turtle that small before. Sweet! Now that's a turtle I think I would be able to pick up! lol I'm scared of the big ones.
T, glad you were able to rescue it!
I had one about that size as a pet for a few years. A friend rescued him from a parking lot. I let him go in our park duck pond.Blessings,Lorilee
When I was a kid, our local five and dime used to sell these tiny turtles for pets, I suppose. My grandpa bought me one, and another time my aunty did, and my Mom just sighed, got out the bowl, a rock he could climb on and some food (veggie stuff but they would also eat tiny bits of ground beef.)So they would mosey around their home dish, probably waiting for another turtle to show up. No wonder my favorite Seuss story is Yertle the Turtle!Cheers,Jo, Stella and Zkhat
Just the cutest....
We stop and help turtles crossing the roads and I guess turtles pee when they get frightened because I've had many of them pee in my hand.
Isn't he the cutest thing!!! Think turtles are very interesting creatures.
Well saved.And he peed in your hand? There's gratitude for you lol
Adorable!! Seriously, some wonderful, super adorable!!!My post today...link: BUDWEISER CLYDESDALES
Turtles are verry interesting.They make great subjects for photo shoots in the swamp.They are not easy to shoot though.They have great vision I guess because they disapear quickly.
He is a cute lil turtle. Great save!
Oh how tiny and cute.
Wow!! He is tiny! Hope he lives long and well!
Sliders are so cute! We have a couple as pets.
Oooh, he was probably scared. Very cute, though
He is adorable! Love the last pic where he's coming out of his shell. Last week my son helped a turtle. The turtle had made it across the street, but was looking for an opening in the chain linked fence. I thought he would just dig a hole. My son carried him to an opening so he could go under the fence. :)
Oh you know how I love turtles. Your's looks so clean, did you give him a shower? I guess mine are so mucky because of the cattle stirring up the water.
cute little turtle
Oh, it is tiny! Isn't that just like nature, peeing on the hand that holds it?!
Oh, he's so little and so cute. I hope he lives a long life in your pond.
Oh, he is just too cute! I'm glad he made it and came to visit.
Lovely Turtle, so small as well. I smiled to know that it had pee in your hand, lol.
Well done you x it looks so cute and when seen in your hand a lot smaller than I thought.
Awwww, how cute! I love turtles. I've never picked up one that didn't pee in my hand.
wow 'he's' tiny!
He sure is small. I don't remember seeing any this small. I assume he is a new baby?
Hi TexWisGirl, Wonderful! I have not seen any turtles here at our pond and only saw two in three years at the lake house. Glad your little guy is well. Have a wonderful day tomorrow!
Aww, is'nt that the cutest little critter!
Very very small, you would not think that from the first picture.Greetings,Filip
Very cute!Birds of the same Feather..., have a great weekend!
Lovely little fella. A little pee in the hand is worth a few photos in the camera, or something like that ;)
So tiny and already so cute!!! Hope you have a long life ahead of you, little darling:)
Awe he is so tiny and oh so cute. I hope he does well!!!
I LOVE turtles. Such a cute little guy. Michael and the kids used to catch turtles and hold races in the front yard of our house in Harbor Springs and Michael would be the MC of the race! We have videos of it. Adorable and great memories. Then they would release them back in the area where they caught them at the end of our street. Margie
So teeny tiny! He is adorable.
Oh he's so tiny!
you have wonderful photos, and I have a wonderful story. I didn't really post it in full, because I don't have a photo.When I was 19, I went to teach. A kid had given me this critter, and I had to go to class. Stupidly, I thought, if I turn it upside down, he would get away. And I left it on my desk.Of course, when I came back, it was gone, and I ask my colleague seated infront of me , if he jokingly took it away. He kept saying, you are so stupid.The bitter thing is, he died a few year ago. I am going back to that school after 38 years this year for their reunion.Still have photo trouble.
He is so tiny and cute.. Just adorable..
Oh, he's so little! Didn't realize it at first!
He is a cute little fellow....
I love the pic with him all tucked in on the palm of your hand....even if he did pee on it LOL!
Such a cute, little fellow. We have found baby snapping turtles (yikes) in the yard before.
Wow, the first photo is deceiving! That sucker is tiny! How cute. At least the watch dogs didn't get it first.
What a treasure! I remember when they used to sell those at the pet shops. I'm glad they don't do that anymore. Or chicks and ducks--OMG!--dyed Easter colors!! It was all too cruel, I thought. this precious little one has a chance to grown up in your pond!! Hurray!! That made my day. :)
so cute, and so sweet!
So he cannot be a whippersnapper then being so small!...:)JP
Cute as a bug-in-a-rug.. my grandmother use to say :)Enjoy your weekend, Theresa.
Malutki, śliczny i dobrze, że go wrzuciłaś do stawu. Pozdrawiam.A tiny, pretty and good that it gave to the pond. Yours.
Oh, it's so cute! I'm glad it was alive and well and will hopefully live a long life in the pond!
It's adorable. Live long and prosper little buddy.
Such a cute little slider!!
I would name him Speedy!
Oh my goodness, he's so tiny!!
What a tiny little fellow! Glad you rescued him!
haha...he is a wee one!!the hand really helped put things in perspective!!
He's very cute!
He's cute! (But he needs turtle Depends!)
Wow, he is so tiny! And cute! Great photos:)
I think if someone picked me up and held me in their hand, I'd pee too! Cute little booger!
how quaint, makes me think of a 'penny turtle' that I think I used to see in pet stores at one time, but are I think illegal to import now. This one is just a baby and will grow much bigger though?
ah; out to correct my earlier comment. I just did a little research on the so-called 'penny turtle' and it seems they're a myth, that they won't remain penny-sized forever at all, any turtle grows bigger when fed correctly.
I think that's the smallest turtle I have ever seen; glad you found it and put it safely in the pond.
I love to look at the markings on turtle's shells. He's so small and cute!
Oh, he's precious!!
That is really cool. Very tiny little turtle:) Another cool reason to have a pond....:) Plus love the photo shoots. Putting the turtle in your hand really puts it all in perspective:) Good luck little buddy...hope you survive and enjoy the friendly waters:)Stay away from Cormorants and Herons for awhile:)
LOL... he is a cutie!!
Oh how cute! I didn't realize how tiny he was until you showed him in your hand. Glad to hear he has water to play in now. I've had bigger critters pee on me, at least that was a tiny amount (I hope).
he is gorgeous!
Goodness, I think we both had turtles on our mind today! Only mine would bite my thumb off if I tried to hold them!
Great shots of the cute little guy.He's so tiny.
Fascinating little fellow.
Had a similar experience with a tiny tortoise in Turkey - it left me a more solid present on my hand - seems to be par for the course!Stewart M - Australia
Oh so sweet!!! I had a baby Red-eared Slider once. He came from Pennyrile and was not larger than a penny and so Pennyrile was his name. I kept him 3 years, until he was not so easy a wildlife fodder and then, he was gone~ I have had a box turtle 4 years now, she is really slow growing. She hibernates 4 months and she is just beginning to awaken once again;)
He's so cute! Enchanting!Have a nice sunday!Angela
He is adorable, and so tiny! How big will he get?
ohhh... So cute.X)
How cute...glad you spotted it and put him your pond. My two oldest grands brought two baby sliders back from Fl a few years back. They got so big they had to give them up (to a good home with more room)
What's a little turtle pee when a photo op is at stake?
Haha. That's funny and cute!!
He is such a cutie! A little shy, perhaps...but cute!I used to work in a pet store. Every spring we would be inundated with people wanting to sell us baby red-ears!
They are so cute as babies and so amazingly tiny. Some are the prettiest shade of green, too.
glad you spotted him before your patrol team did. :o)
I think I might have had a turtle like this when I was a kid. Funny how I can't really remember... he's a cute little guy! :)
Oh...hello there, you tiny turtle!I haven't seen you...Hi Theresa...GOOOOOD morning and a have a wonderful week!Bshell
tiny, cute little guy!lovely shots!xx
Baron didn't go after this turtle did he?
He was really little. sandie
Just adorable. Every day that something doesn't pee in your hand is a bonus. ;)
turtles!! what a little cutie! we've rescued a couple before like that...i hope he's good at hiding...being that small...so many predators who just love the taste of turtle!! :/
What a cutie!
I believe they pee because they are terrified ... congrats on a POTW!
i watched a pelican trying to eat one of the same size 2 days ago
Saw this on POTW. Love it!!
brava on POTWhe's a cutie
I'm so glad you picked the little guy up and shared your photo session with us. May he live happily ever after in your pond. Congratulations on the POTW. Well deserved.
