Christiane, great spotting and thank you for saving this wonderful turtle!
That's creepy looking!
finally had a chance to see all 3 videos! great work!
Very cool photos and videos..
@ ceherzog Yes it is amazing..and I am happy I rescued her! She is now in the creek that borders my property.. I spotted her this morning!
Great job, Christiane. It's amazing that her carapace was not broken after having been run over twice! Turtles & cars....what a dilemma. Thanks for your rescue!
Thank you to all of you! I just hope she will be happy in her new home!
That last video with the turtle stretching her neck out is awsome Christiane!

Thats very good of you to help the wildlife! :)
This video is a masterpiece and thanks for taking care of her!
I don't know much about this turtles.. they are normally very shy. I found this one on the bridge.. run over by at least 1 car and very dehydrated. So I stopped the car, picked up the turtle, put her (It was a her) in the Esky and took her home! She was checked by a vet! After 2 days she was very active and happy to go back to the creek!
The video is awesome! Thanks for sharing it!
Very cool! Did you post the video! That was great!
Those are nice shots of a really gorgeous turtle. Are they fairly docile, or is there a good reason to stay out of reach of that amazing neck?
wow, that's a neat one. That is one epic-ly long neck, and I didn't know there were turtles with such distinct tympanum.
Good job Christiane - and nice photography too.
The turtle is free again!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fo3dM0T5Z...
