Not having been along the magenta route in nearly two months and looking for a change of scenery, I gave it a bit of a go--that is, until the mosquitoes nearly carried me off. I did make it to the beach area and just beyond down a pathway to find a painted turtle making her nest.
Within 72 to 80 days, hatchlings will emerge from their eggs as fully formed little reptiles ready to go about their businesses. During incubation, the eggs are given no attention.
The beach is within the Harry C. Darling Wildlife Management Area, which encompasses a portion of the lake's western shoreline. Sadly, I can uncover no detail on Mr. Darling.
