Missing: Ralph the Box Turtle

Thursday, August 25, 2016

Ralph the box turtle has wandered away from his family and they are distraught.

Ralph is about 6 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 4 inches tall with a domed shell. His top shell is olive colored; bottom shell is hinged. His body is black with orange and yellow spots.

He was lost around 198th and Wallingford.

Box turtles do very well in this weather, so it's very likely he's still around. They like the heat of the day, and they like to burrow and hide in dark corners.

A box turtle is actually a tortoise, which is a land animal; he's not the kind of guy who would enjoy being put in the lake. (He'd drown.)

If you live in this area of the Echo Lake neighborhood, look around your yard.

If you find him, call Dawn at 206-650-0033 or Dean at 206-841-9329.
