Climbing Acrobatic Turtle!

If you have an outside country dog, then you know, depending on the bark, whether or not a critter has wandered up.

One afternoon,  Snowpaw started barking-- it didn't sound like a 'SNAKE!' bark but it didn't stop so out we go to see which critter was calling.

It was this wacky turtle...

Just hanging out on the porch-- exploring around.  Then it started climbing the rocks of the house! Who knew turtles climbed?! Of course, it only got so high then toppled backwards. 

We flipped Mr. Wacky Turtle right side up pointing away from the house and stepped way back.

Did Mr. Wacky Turtle go about his turtle business?

No, Mr. Wacky Turtle put on a show!

Apparently, Mr. Wacky Turtle is a circus turtle-- he climbed and flipped backwards seven times!

Here is a video of one of Mr. Wacky Turtle's encore performances...
