This time of year you can find terrapins making nests, basically a hole in 
the ground where they lay half a dozen or so leathery eggs.  Last year we found 
a terrapin doing so and when she had covered the eggs and left, we put a fence 
around the nest, four old queen excluders.  Late in the summer we found two 
newly hatched turtles in there and the girls raised them in a terrarium over 
the winter and set them on their way this spring.   </HTML>
