Today as I drove out to the main highway I had to pass through a rather large and a bit deep puddle in my road. As I passed
through I noticed a medium sized turtle swimming in the puddle.

Would you:

A. Ignore the Turtle?
B.Try to hit him with your car?
C. Stop and attempt to rescue the Turtle.
D. Meh who cares? It's the Turtles lot if I accidentally squish it?
E. Nixnot take a shower!

A. Ignore the Turtle? --Most likely
B.Try to hit him with your car? --No
C. Stop and attempt to rescue the Turtle. --Depends on the amount of traffic around me and if I had the time.
D. Meh who cares? It's the Turtles lot if I accidentally squish it? --I would make everyone care, because I'd be the **** to incessantly tell all my friends about how I saved a turtle and became its GOD
E. Nixnot take a shower! --This might kill more future turtles with the drainwater.

He was swiming in a big puddle on my road.

This is what he looked like.

Actually I had to look it up. It wasn't like the Painted Turtles I remember catching as a kid in the local pond.

Ok, I spotted the turtle in the large puddle as I went through it. Making sure I didn't hit it I went about my business.
On the way back I didn't see him in the puddle so I did my best to skirt the edge of the puddle. When I exited the
puddle I stopped the car and got out. I spotted the turtle just under the water. I was afraid that I might have hit him.
Looking around I found a long stick and using it I poked him and he moved. Using the stick I slowly guided him to the
edge of the puddle and I scooped him up . He was rather large and by the moss on his shell a few years old. All he
did was hide in his shell. His shell was about as large as a Nerf football. I carried him to the car and getting in I held
him with my one hand and drove down the road till I reached the land bridge by the large water tank. (Texas's idea of
a pond man made). Stopping the car I got out and put him in the pond and he swam off.

Yay!

I feel like I've just read the world's least exciting "choose your own adventure" book, but at least the turtle got saved.

Free turtle! I'd keep him as a pet. I like turtles (cue video).

I'm curious about what turtle shells shatter when run over with a car, and what turtle shells don't. Can we come up with a myth about this for those guys to bust?
