My Fiancé rescued this little fellow from getting killed on the road at lunchtime. He was crossing a busy main road and Luke pulled in and lifted him. There was no lake or water in sight just a construction site so Luke made contact with a wildlife conservationist who directed him to a lake not too far away. The little fellow was delighted to see water and happily swam away :)

OWH how lucky for him that your fiancé was there to rescue him, I had some turtles when I was a child I loved sitting watching them. he is quite old by the looks of the size of him. :D

Yes he was very lucky. 1 year ago exactly today Luke was hit by a car and today he rescues this little guy from the same fate.
I used to have 2 terrapins when I was a kid and they were gorgeous. They grew so big and my dad ended up building a pond outside for them. They laid eggs 2 years running but unfortunately they never hatched.
I'm glad this guy is safe now and a little jealous I didn't get to see him in real life :p

I can see why you are in love with your Fiancé -- what a great guy!
Since he rescues animals and goes to the effort of finding a wildlife conservationist to determine the best place to set the turtle free, he is a definite keeper in my book! :thumbsup:

The pictures of the turtle are great and I'm so glad Luke was able to rescue the little guy. Hugs to you both. :grouphug:
