A box turtle lives in my back pasture/vineyard. Will my riding mower crush or hurt it if I run over accidentally?

Is there a Box Turtle Connection packet for volunteers? I pick up turtles on roads and would like to tag them. Sea Turtle group does this on the coast with a tape measure, marker for shell and paperwork Thanks Heather Main

So fun!
Steve Archibald
01:11:32
Best to use your phone to take multiple photos from different angles for now
Judith West
01:12:53
Do patterns on the shells change as the turtles grow
Robert Soots

Sorry I have to leave early for medical appoint.

There are a lot of chemtrails I see in the NC sky. How can that be impacting the turtles?
Portia McCracken
01:24:01
Do those transmitters interfere with their sexual behavior--males can mount females with no problem?
Margaret Sands
01:24:21
I've found a lot of box turtles on railroad tracks (up to 10 in 30 minutes) what is it about that harsh habitat appeals to them or are they just stuck?
Brandy Oldham
01:28:35
I had a female lay a clutch of eggs in my yard. When we saw her we left her be so as not to stress her. Later I put a little flag nearby so we would know to be careful of the area. I can't tell that they ever hatched though. Is that common?
CC King
01:29:43
Do we need to do a fundraiser for FIT?
Steve Archibald
01:32:09
You'll only see a turtle crossing the road ...never seen one going down the road !
Mari Trosclair
01:32:26
thank you, great information.

If there is an area about to be developed re: Chatham Park, can we go there before development and rescue them?
Terry Lefler
01:33:27
Missed Sara's contact info.
Martha Girolami
01:33:57
Erosion fences need to be removed….I see them everywhere and no one removes them so can be a barrier to turtle movement.
Catherine Bollinger
01:34:49
Is the iNaturalist box turtle data being harvested by your study, or is it not detailed enough to be useful. I’ve been photographing top and underside when I report them, but I’m wondering if that is enough to be helpful.
sandy harwood
01:37:26
Would you add links in chat to inaturalist & tracker apps, Sara's email so it's easier to select? Thanks.
Jessica Garten
01:37:28
Because you mentioned they digest an pollinate mayapples, are mayapples a good indication box turtles live in the woodland?Debbie: Do nurseries sell mayflowers?
Ed Harrison
01:37:32
Erosion fences need to be installed and kept in place where there is new construction to reduce (and, we hope, prevent) sedimentation in our surface waters. There are *far* worse barriers to box turtle movement.
Jessica Garten
01:38:59
What time of year do they lay eggs?
Portia McCracken
01:39:21
Thx for the answer to my question. The photos made the transmitters look so big--they seemed invasive to the little critters (I worry a lot about turtles).
Robin Lyons
01:40:12
what about Turtle egg laying in our driveway?? This happens a lot to us.
Robin Lyons
01:40:39
Gravel drive...
Portia McCracken
01:40:58
How do we get the gps location?
Heather Main
01:41:09
There is a bill in NC house 496 that allows developers to take all trees down and there is no tree protection. Can you work on getting tree zone protection for all new developments and maybe work to not pass bill 496? We need groups to make tree protection in all developments in order to protect habitats and for shade and carbon sequestration and . to reduce global warming
Anika Devereux
01:41:38
Do the parents' scute patterns transfer to the babies? Could we tell who the parents are of a turtle?
Heather Main
01:41:42
great presentation
CC King
01:41:43
Awesome Sara!
Portia McCracken
01:51:31
Snappers have a very long, supple neck!
Mari Trosclair
01:54:34
Thank you, I have to go to an appointment. Great presentations.

A year or two ago I found a dinner plate size snapping turtle inside my fenced (goat fence) pasture. Not sure how it got inside the fence. Was able to get it out safely and it ran away quickly.

what is the courtship ritual of turtles?
Therese Walters

We live on a pine tree forest (100+ acres). We have a small (~1/4 acre) pond in the back yard. The pond is stocked with fish. This year we counted over 60 turtles. I think they are snappers, yellow bellied and red-eared. My husband read that the pond is overpopulated w turtles so he built a turtle trap and we caught several and moved them to a creek about 1 mile away. We choose this because it is downstream from us in the hopes that they would not come back. Did we do something wrong? What should we have done?
Brandy Oldham
02:07:13
Oh wow! That's so good to know. I left it alone and hoped for the best!
Portia McCracken
02:07:48
How do hatchlings survive if they stay in the nest through the winter? What do they eat?
Jeanne Lambert
02:11:14
Can you recommend a reference book for identification?
Catherine Bollinger
02:11:50
Two river cooters, a painted turtle, and a snapping turtle all emerged from an adjacent wetland last June and laid eggs in my yard. I marked the nests, but have not seen any signs of disturbance since. May I assume any turtles within are long gone and/or eaten?
Ethan Fogleman
02:12:19
WE recently bought a property with a pond and have at least one monster Snapper! We also have two nesting ducks. Can they coexist, or will the snapper take the baby ducks? We'd love to have them all get along!
Robin Lyons
02:12:27
Thanks for the answer to our driveway nests!
Lynn Martin
02:12:54
Great and interesting presentations.
Heather Main
02:13:27
Why do box turtles come out after a rain to travel?
Therese Walters
02:15:21
He read that the overpopulation in the pond was crowding out the fish? Especially if snappers were in the pond.
CC King
02:16:15
Can you talk a bit more about Delayed implantation?
Portia McCracken
02:16:54
Thanks for answering my question. Fascinating information!
CC King
02:23:34
Thanks!

02:29:11
any idea how old Crutchie is?
Portia McCracken
02:29:59
Debbie, are the rehabbed turtles always released back in their original territory? If that isn't known, what is done with the turtle?
Portia McCracken
02:31:37
Snapping turtles are so dense, they seem very heavy for their size.
susie crate
02:34:05
So if we find an injured turtle, we put them in a box?
Allison Weakley
02:38:39
Love Winston! <3
Portia McCracken
02:40:01
We really enjoyed following your care & rehab of Winston💕
Portia McCracken
02:44:30
Do you get a chance to visit Winston in his new habitat? Do you think he would remember/recognize you?
CC King
02:45:38
Without a shovel, I had a snapper bite a stick and pulled it gently off the road. Good practice?
Allison Weakley
02:46:18
I've used my car's floor mats to move a snapper off the road.
Terry Lefler
02:47:32
Happy Earth Day!
anne mulkern
02:51:45
thank you all so much. hugely informative!
Heather Holley

Use google maps to place a pin
Brandy Oldham
02:52:09
I drop a pin in my Google Maps app
Jeanne Lambert
02:52:17
I’m not real mobile anymore but I do have some wooded property with intermittent stream, adjacent to larger tracts of woodland. Do you need area like this for habitat for a study area?
Martha Girolami
02:52:42
once I saw a box turtle biting another turtle’s shell in the fall. the other turtle was closed tightly and stayed that way….no consent there
Terry Lefler
02:52:45
Open compass, save a screenshot
Heather Holley
02:53:04
if you take a photo and locate is on the photo will have the GPS corrdinates
CC King
02:53:05
Debbie's point about parking so the next car doesn't hit the turtle is so key.
Allison Weakley
02:54:00
Does the Box Turtle Connection have a Chatham site?
Allison Weakley
02:55:17
What's required to be a site?
Sara Steffen (she/her)

For those interested in The Box Turtle Connection, you can also check out the website: https://boxturtle.uncg.edu/

please note there are some things that need to be updated. :)
Brandy Oldham
02:58:14
I suspect if it's small you could perhaps put it on your floorboard?
Brandy Oldham
02:58:34
If it's really teeny, your cupholder :)
