We came across this determined little guy making his way across a dirt road. This juvenile Red-eared Slider was leaving a cow pasture on his way to a nearby body of water. He was not to be deterred by weeds, dirt, or what appears to be a bad or injured eye.

How big is this hatchling? He is roughly the size of Washington Quarter in diameter. I hope he made it!
