I've seen splashes in the lakes before and always thought they were probably fish jumping for flies but yesterday I found this very large Asiatic Softshell Turtle in the pasture and can only presume it was her splashing around in the water! She made a very 'speedy' retreat to the lake and so we have called her SHEL-BY (after the Ford Mustang sports car!) which we think is quite appropriate! I counted at least 8 baby turtles awaiting the return of their Mom in the shallows. Turtles are an omen of good tidings in Thailand so by the size of Shelby let's hope the prophecy comes true!
