Welcome to the world little one! A brand new Blanding's turtle (Emydoidea blandingii) emerging from it's shell at the #OTCC! It'll be joining it's siblings once it finishes hatching, and consumes the remainder of its yolk sack.

A curious juvenile snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina) stretching out to try and catch a glimpse of some of the new hatchlings at the #OTCC!

Baby season has arrived at the #OTCC! Several clutches have hatched so far, and new turtles are joining their numbers every day! Here is an example of the type of habitat we create for juvenile turtles.

Another successful rehabilitation! Our Turtle Programs Manager at the #OTCC taxied this painted turtle (Chrysemys picta) all the way to #ManitoulinIsland for it's release with the veterinary technician who originally found it injured. We love happy endings!

Hatching season has begun at the @ontarioturtlecc and this is the first of the Blanding's eggs to hatch! You can see this little guy still has a yolk sac attached to his plastron. This yolk sac will sustain him and slowly be absorbed over the next couple days. Once the yolk sac is completely absorbed, we'll measure, weigh and put him in water with the rest of his siblings as they hatch!

Juvenile Blanding's turtle (Emydoidea blandingii) siblings from a clutch hatched last year at the #OTCC enjoying some warm rays!

This is one of the musk turtles (Sternotherus odoratus) spending some time at the #OTCC this year. This is Ontario's smallest native turtle species, and they're capable of producing a musky smell from glands on the side of their shells to deter predators. This is why they're also know as stinkpot turtles!

Some of our residents at the #OTCC are very particular about their tanks, and supervise the cleaning process very closely.

Breaking out of your egg is tiring work! This little painted turtle (Chrysemys picta) is one of the first to hatch this season at the #OTCC. Over the next few days, the hatchlings will deplete their yolk sacs, and the clutch will be moved to a tank where they'll grow until they're ready for release!

This Blanding's turtle (Emydoidea blandingii) was raised at the #OTCC and recently released at our field site so it could be tracked by our #FieldWork team! If you look closely, you can see the small transmitter on the turtle's carapace!

Happy #SnapperSaturday! Anyone who's ever seen one of our education presentations knows our ambassador Paddy the #SnappingTurtle (Chelydra serpentina). During the summer, Paddy lives in our Outdoor Education Centre at the #OTCC and spends the days basking, or swimming in one of his two ponds.

Another painted turtle (Chrysemys picta) returned to where he belongs after a few months of recovery at the #OTCC! As much as we love #Turtles, we're always the most happy when they can go back home.

We've had another turtle dropped off for the @ontarioturtlecc! This giant snapping turtle needs some nose work and has a crack in his shell, but we think he'll be ok! Naturally, we named him Scarface! If you'd like to help the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre, please reach out to them! They're doing such an amazing job helping all these turtles! #snappingturtle #OTCC #ontarioturtles #theyneedourhelp #Scarefaceneedsanosejob

Blanding's turtles (Emydoidea blandingii) always look like they're smiling, but after successful rehabilitation at the #OTCC, this particular female has even more to smile about!
