Hello and welcome to our Terrapin Crusaders blog. We began this blog as a means to help educate and share our journey and conservation efforts of the Northern Diamondback Terrapin turtle. These creatures are unique and amazing and in need of our help.

Turtle updates

The hatchlings are doing great. They all started eating and went right to shrimp. No picky eaters in this group. It amazing how much they eat.

We got the new hatchlings for our Head Start program. 15 from MATES and 4 hatched from eggs on GBB where the mother ran off before they were covered and protected. These are the MATES ones. Very unique patterns.

Have you ever seen a Terrapin hatch? Well we got to see a few of the eggs hatch today over at MATES. It was the most amazing experience.
