The BBC Reports Ferral Terrapins

It sounds amazing, but the BBC is reporting that ferral terrapins are terrorizing the native wildlife of England. According to the article, they are imported from North America. However, as far as I know, terrapins are endangered and aren't supposed to be captured, transported or sold, especially the North American Terrapin or the North American turtle or "common box turtle" as we also know them by here in Kentucky.

Since I am a big turtle fan, the animal, not TMNT, I am always very interested in how the species is advancing and hopefully prospering. As I have said repeatedly: Turtles prove God has a sense of humor - walking rocks. Besides, how can you not love modern day dinosaurs?
