That's great that you rescued those animals. I think you could add this to the mission on wildlife rescue and rehabilitation:

I was there with friends. We took out every animal we were able to catch, and released them. We released balkan terrapins to nearby streams.

Nice spotting! What did you do with it after finding it in the manhole?
