Eastern Box Turtle Passing Through

DSC01262We found this little guy on the sidewalk just up from our house.  We read that males have red irises and females have brown ones.  So, this is definitely a male and the  kids named him Rufus.  We kept Rufus in our yard for hours as we enjoyed observing him.  He was just passing through, so we let him continue on his journey later in the day.
