Ready, Set, Go!

Michael Clough of the Southern Vermont Museum of Natural History taught us all about turtles today.  He brought a snapping turtle, a wood turtle, and a painted turtle.  The wood and painted turtles challenged each other to a race.  Who do you think won?  Watch the video to find out.
