-->> ..!!
..i wanted to touch base on this a few months back but kept putting it off. Tales of the TMNT
.. has been featuring a little wood turtle in real need of our help for a radio transmitter.. her name is F-104. She was found in the Conneticut Valley of Massachusetts!! It is guessed she is 20 - 30 years old. She lives in a small,fast-flowing brook surrounded by hayfield and hemlock forest. The Turtle nested in June and supposedly wandering the fields and roads and woodlands. In the fall she is supposed to return to the river she hibernates in.

Steve Murphy and his Turtle-live crew at 'Tales..'is asking for everyone's help. The radio transmitter is important in this effort for trackingF-104.. wood turtles are endangered !!
