Turtle from Lake Eulalia in Maitland

We often have turtles come out of Lake Eulalia  and trudge up to our Thurston House Bed & Breakfast yard to leave their eggs in a sandy and safe area. This one is perhaps the biggest I have ever seen! This all is part of why our yard has been designated a Certified Wildlife Habitat. To be certified as such, we are required to provide a quality habitat, including food, water, cover and places to raise their young. We are such a place, and it is truly amazing that we are located only 5 miles from downtown Orlando!
