Thirsty Thursday

You humans may not believe it, but we’ve still got a few pond animals out on these nice days we’re having.

Eastern Painted Turtle

The Eastern Painted Turtle is one of these stubborn fellows that keeps coming out to bask. Why you may ask? For as strange as it sounds, this species has blood that is almost like antifreeze in human cars. It tolerates temperature drops—that slow that cold-blooded fellow down—and temperature rises.

The rest of us just get the sniffles when we go through hot and cold changes.
