Today a friend and I took a drive to the riverside village of Dubovac, about 1.5 hours from Belgrade. Not a lot there, but we did a walk along the river. I almost stepped on a 'leaf' on the dusty road up the river bank, but upon closer observation saw that it was a (very) baby turtle. Here's a pic of the little fellow/gal. I am a big turtle lover, but knowing it would be happier with Mother Nature, I returned the wayward turtle to the quiet water area next to the river where it happily swam off. I've looked it up and it seems to be a European Pond Turtle...who likes rivers. If anyone knows for sure, let me know. I have a couple of other photos.
Its nails are nicer than mine, but my skin is better.
