For all you CSI fans! Victim: Eastern box turtle; Location of remains: wedged 5' up in the fork of a tree; Scene of crime: our woods; Prime suspects: Raccoon? Red-tail hawk?
The light was too poor to get a shot of the carapace still in the tree & I had forgotten to bring crime scene tape so I moved it out of the woods to get a better photo. The carapace is about 6" long & there were no other remains that I could see close to the scene of the crime! I would welcome any ideas on possible suspects!
