Wood turtle massage!

A male performs one of the many courting behaviors during breeding season. Not many people get an opportunity to observe the life of aquatic turtles aside from their terrestrial activities, but here's a little bit of cute.

If you are interested, take a look at the reproductive systems of wood turtles and other species. To be able to essentially choose when to fertilize eggs without breeding for years and years is a remarkable ability.

Most of my favorite critters in Pennsylvania are taking some much needed rest as winter begins 😴

A male wood turtle trying to court a female from the beginning of November 2018.

Courtship usually leads to breeding in this Pennsylvania species of special concern and these two were definitely not disturbed during this observation.

Courting behavior is quite common throughout various wildlife species in order to reproduce. Many species of turtles will put on quite the display both actively (male and females headbobbing, gentle caressing, dances, fighting, etc.) and passively (males with bright coloration, males growing longer claws, etc.) during their breeding seasons to carry on their genetics. Genotype (genetic makeup of organism) to preferred phenotype (visible result of genes and environment). These characteristics contribute to the overall fitness of an animal and allow the species to carry on. In this case, the male had already secured his spot and was gently massaging the female. I have a vid I can post if there's anyone who would like to see this behavior, haha. Anyways, she likely carried him and other males around for awhile earlier this month.

The wood turtle on top was the first turtle I marked at this site in October of 2015. He has been everywhere in every season through the years that I've known him. I utilize photos a lot in order to ID the turtles rather than disturb them.

Fall is not only the season for bird migrations, but its also the season when Wood Turtles begin migrating back to forested streams to hibernate. Locally known as "ol' red legs" or "skilpots", this semi-aquatic turtle has experienced dramatic declines throughout its range as a result of habitat loss, road mortality, and illegal poaching for the pet trade. With funding from a Competitive State Wildlife Grant, DGIF has been conducting surveys and working with various conservation partners, private landowners and even a local State Senator (Richard "Dick" Black), to help stop this decline and protect the remaining populations. Visit www.americanturtles.org to learn more about this species and our conservation efforts. #🐢 #vawildlife #turtle #gooutdoorsva #woodturtle

This sweet smile belongs to our new wood turtle patient, and a species of special concern in both ME and NH. Wood turtles are listed as globally endangered through the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, and their fate has the same causes as our box, Blanding’s and spotted turtles: poaching and rapid development/ loss of habitat. This patient came to us due to poaching, he was confiscated by ME IF&W from a local classroom. He has lost his front left foot, and it is unclear when this happened. Unfortunately he did not go to a wildlife rehabilitator, so the foot is now completely gone. It is unclear whether it could have been saved. 
He is otherwise healthy, though we are evaluating whether his time in “inappropriate human possession”(IHP)has made him tame and unafraid of predators. In the wild, this could mean he could easily be captured again and kept as a pet or sold on the black market, or easily attacked by a raccoon or other natural predator. Wood turtles are also semi aquatic turtles, spending the majority of their time in and around rivers, flood plains, and oak/ maple forests or fields surrounding their rivers and streams. We also need to evaluate mobility and how he has adapted to the loss of the front foot.

We have several inquiries to biologists and turtle specialists on post release data of IHP turtles along with semi-aquatic turtles with similar disability. With their populations so critical and the fact that adults cannot breed until they reach 14-18 years old, each individual that can make it back can be substantial for local populations. But, we would never set up a patient for mortality. Stay tuned, and please spread the word that it is inhumane and illegal to take turtles like this from the wild. Let’s live wildlife the right way, when they are free to live their natural full lives💚🐢#conservationmedicine #environmentaleducation #cfw #centerforwildlife #woodturtle #ifyoucareleavethemthere

Another set of twins for the books.
These two wood turtles (Glyptemys insculpta) were born from the same egg and they share the same yolk sac. Time will tell if they’ll survive since they bursted out of the egg a bit soon but if you don’t know already, we’ve had some incredible success with twins. Just google “Separating Tortoise Twins”. Fingers crossed for these two.

A phone voucher shot of my lifer #WoodTurtle (Glyptemys insculpta) found on the side of a river in Connecticut back in late August.
Wood turtles are a species of special concern in CT and are in decline due to habitat loss and fragmentation and road mortality. This is the only individual I’ve ever seen, although next year I’m hoping to see some more. One of my favorite turtle species for sure! #speciesofspecialconcern #Glyptemys #Connecticut

The aptly named North American wood turtle in some brushy habitat. This is a male from last week.

Wood turtles get their name from the sculpted carapace (top of shell) they have which resembles the annuli of a tree. Some other turtle species have annuli that can be seen on the carapace, but not many have the definition like wood turtles do. Typical growth patterns of some species of turtles are a lot like trees - you can count the annuli on the plastron (bottom of shell) and estimate age. The plastron of this male is almost completely worn away. I learned that when you see this wear, the turtle usually has significant age. It wouldn't surprise me of this male is pushing 30yo or more, along with many others at this site.

This specific site has changed a lot over the last century. The population of wood turtles here have seen agriculture/cattle come and go, torrential flooding, and even habitat management for trout. Right now they are experiencing invasive plants establish themselves after some less-dense invasive plants were cut out. These plants had seeded when various storms affected Pennsylvania over the last 15 years. The turtles here just switched up their basking areas in order to avoid the density of the more aggressive invasive plants 🌿🐢

The wood turtles were active today..soon they will rest for a few months. #woodturtle #turtle #pennsylvania
A female wood turtle relaxes underneath a favorite log jam. Most people will only notice wood turtles when they're out in the open on land, as they have a unique sculpted carapace (top shell) that allows them to blend in well within their environments. The fall is a fairly busy time for these turtles in Pennsylvania. The other afternoon I began to think about how certain aspects of nature are similar to every day human life. In general, it can look chaotic - in that there's a lot going on at every moment. Both can be stressful at various points, but at other times they can be relaxing. Simple enough outlook.

When you spend countless hours that add up to years with creatures of habit, you can allow yourself to learn their typical behaviors. The places they like and don't like to be, good & bad routines, things they like and don't like, daily activity levels, etc. This is true for what we know of human-human interactions and human-wildlife research. Like many species, wood turtles have an interesting social structure within their populations that I'll continue to try to understand, like people. For me, the daily overwhelming activity that occurs in nature while I'm out and about is relaxing 😌

A female wood turtle overlooks her streamside habitat as she basks on 1 November 2018.

As autumn weather brings some random warmer temperatures into the southcentral region of Pennsylvania and the leaves fall overnight, I think of the mighty wood turtle - one of my favorite species of wildlife.

I want to introduce some of you to them. Over the course of the month when I get some time I'll shed some light on this unique species.

An adult male wood turtle overlooks his domain in November 2018.

In Pennsylvania, wood turtles are a protected species. I monitored a population from 2015-2016 and still drop by to see how they're all doing. A lot of my wood turtle photographs contain unique notches (or marks) that were placed in order to easily identify each individual - with no harm to the turtle. All the handling/marking/measuring I did was in compliance with state and federal regulations and with proper permitting and it always will be 🐢

North American Wood Turtle, one of the best looking pattern hatchlings Iv seen in person ! These guys are killer 🐢🐢#koreysturtles #turtleroom #woodturtle #lasvegas
I collected this image over ten years ago, labeling this image nestable 43; having been the 43rd turtle I had encountered in this population. This female #woodturtle was fortunate enough to avoid nesting in the nearby gravel pit - that sees a heavy amount of summertime ATV traffic. Perhaps in the coming years I’ll get to see her again.

Fall fieldwork is the best fieldwork 🐢🍁 My field season finally came to a close last week and although I'm sad I don't have an excuse to be up north nearly every weekend, I'm pretty stoked to avoid that 6 hours of driving.

Also, shoutout to Richard for helping me multiple times with canoeing and telemetry!

Meet Betty Boomer our naturalist and scientist comes in once a month and shares our passion for nature. Yesterday Betty brought in the last monarch to be released (we hope it makes it to Mexico on time!) and she showed us a wood turtle. We walked our nature trail and built mini ponds in the classroom. Such fun! #nature #science #woodturtle #monarch #montessori #montessoriofnewpaltz

During the summer, wood turtles feed in dry forest lands. Come winter, they hibernate fully submerged in rivers and streams! 📷: Mike Jones/MassWildlife

The last few days have been so busy and eventful! Only just managed today to get the turtle room tidied up and maintenance done.

My baby turtle rack is nearly done, just need to get the filters running and lights plugged in...and just 2 weeks until the next reptile show 😮

First post of this account!!! This is one of our two wood turtles (Glyptemys insculpta) and he loves to bite shoes. Wood turtles are known for spending a great amount of time in or near flowing water and can live nearly 60 years in captivity. They are omnivorous, and love eating mosses, grasses, fungi, and various insects. Wood turtles are classified as endangered, due to habitat loss, the pet trade, and traffic collisions.

Got to meet Aldabra giant tortoises yesterday @reptiland_zoo ! It was awesome to meet giant tortoises, they were extremely friendly too! I saw a few other species as well, including wood turtles, eastern box turtles, alligator snapping turtles, yellow foot tortoises, and some eastern painted turtles. #clydepeelingsreptiland #aldabratortoise #aldabrachelysgigantea #aldabrachelysgiganteagigantea #chelonoidisdenticulata #yellowfoottortoise #easternpaintedturtle #chrysemyspicta #macrochelys #macrochelystemminckii #macrochelysapalachicolae #macrochelyssuwwaniensis #glyptemysinsculpta #woodturtle #terrepenecarolina #terrepenecarolinacarolina #easternboxturtle

Big Rich and Mid Rich love taking turns showing me how much they can carry around in their mouths. Have I mentioned that wood turtles are my absolute favorite species of chelonian? They have charismatic and outgoing personalities. #northamericanwoodturtle #woodturtle #glyptemysinsculpta #glyptemys #turtle #turtlesofinstagram #reptile #reptilesofinstagram #herp #cute #nomnoms #turtlesofnyunite

I finished the jewelweed painting! This is the next card for the plant spirit oracle. Jewelweed is a wonderful antidote to poison ivy, And it loves to grow in wet damp climates, just like what is on the painting. #plantspirit #plantspiritoracle #plantspiritoracledeck #jewelweed #spottedjewelweed #druidry #druidart #spiritart #tortoise #woodturtle #turtleart #watercolor
