Out for a short trip this past weekend. Paddling a short distance from a steepish rocky shore, we heard splashes as debris rolled down the high rock slab. The cause we found was a largish painted turtle sliding wildly down the rock face, knocking moss and lichen as it went. No pictures as it happened to quickly and by the time the turtle splashed down at the foot of the cliff we were both laughing too much to use a camera. Anyone seen similar? Deliberate or accident do you think? Was this some daredevil turtle out for a thrill or just some hapless Chelonian who underestimated the angle of descent.
