Touche Turtle and Away!
I just love fnding new uses for Tupperware!
On Second Hand Sunday (29 Nov just passed), The Old Flame and I picked up the base of a Tupperware marinating dish thinking we might have seal lurking in the bits and pieces collection.
It came in quite useful when we rescued this little fellow. He was trying to cross the Barton Highway at a very busy spot. I picked up the smelly freshwater turtle, either Emydura macquarii (Macquarie Turtle) or Chelodina longicollis (Snake-necked Turtle), and we took him to a reedy spot near the lake in Nicholls. He was gone in seconds. So quickly did he depart, we didn't get another photo.
Live well, Stinky.
