Second rescue from roads last two weeks - they are on the move with the wet weather. "When it feels threatened, this turtle will emit an offensive smelling fluid from its musk glands. This trait gives the turtle one of its other common names, "stinker."" [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_long-necked_turtle] Interestingly this one did not even tho it was lively on capture.
