This western painted turtle was seen in the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area. Females lay a single batch of eggs every two years in June or July. They prefer to dig in places that have loose soil, so nesting sites may be up to 150 metres away from the water near roadways. This obviously poses a major threat to their population. Watch out for any turtles as they cross the road! (Photo by Kelsey Yates) Do you have a photo of local wildlife you'd like to submit? Send an e-mail to kelsey.yates@crestonvalleyadvance.ca.
