I almost ran this guy over with my RV and trailer yesterday. I managed to swerve and go safely over him. By the time I stopped the rig and ran back to see him, he had run over to the side. I told him to stay put while I went home and got my camera. Ten minutes later, he was still there and ready for a photo shoot.

  1. R.V. vs. turtle!?! – That is one lucky turtle!! Good thing you are so observant & have such good reflexes…
