Before I get to the real reason for this post I have to share with you this unique patient that we had at the vets’ yesterday.
I shared it our Facebook page but I know that some of you don’t visit Facebook.
This is a Spiny Soft Shell Turtle
He was brought to us by a local nature and science center who had found him with a hook in his mouth.
He was really cool. He might of been a she but I’m not sure. I’ve never seen a soft shell turtle before and I was amazed at just how soft his shell was.
The vet took x-rays of him to see where exactly the hook was and I thought it would be cool to share the x-ray with you.
As you can see the hook is not in his mouth but further down, possibly in his esophagus. The turtle should be fine, but the vet was not able to remove the hook without surgical intervention, so the turtle was referred to a reptile specialist for further evaluation.
Pretty cool, right?
Alright now onto to the part that I need your help on.
My sister has talked me into entering some photos into a local county fair’s photography contest and I need your help on which ones to enter.
Of course I am entering into the amateur competition and I will be entering into the following categories:
4. Black and White
Here’s what I have so far of what I am thinking of entering:
