    Road Kill today - A snake, a box turtle and a large snapping turtle.
    But 3 days earlier, I stopped and helped another large snapping turtle in a different area altogether across the road. Had to stop traffic. That one was a good size, almost too big to lift, so I tapped it w a stick a few times to get it moving to the other side of the road.
    Must be my month for snappers, because about 3 weeks earlier, I had to do the same w an even larger one. That one had already stopped traffic in both directions when I came on the scene. Pretty sure it was not the same turtle as the one 3 days ago as it was a different, even larger size. Their tails look like a small gator and they do snap when disturbed.
    My wife said I should have taken pix of both. Next time .

    I once came across a fish. I always felt bad that it never made it across the road. This was before I had a camera phone but I wish I had pictures.

    One large dear that was really bloated.

    I was tempted to get off the bike and try to put the critter upright, but decided not to.

    I started photographing roadkill while out on the bike, just to see how many different species I could document. Probably the rarest I've seen so far was a mink. Also a nice owl. Several foxes. Something unknown (mangled beyond recognition). I could go on, but you get the point. I've seen probably every type of rodent here in NJ. Lot's of dead deer, but mostly does. I'm waiting for I nice big buck to photograph. And still waiting for my first roadkill bear (seen several live ones).

    A rabbit who wasn't quick enough to make it across the street. Looks like it got hit from behind and a large raccoon who has been decomposing in the street for the past couple of weeks.

    So it looks like 8 more. The bra doesn't count, however if it was a pair of panties...

    I see 2-3 armadillos per ride.



    The more I think about it, they're probably the same ones. I ride on the same road often...

    The fox and owl look sad.

    Are those centipedes eating the carcass of the unknown animal?

    Well the mink doesn't look too pleased either.

    Last Tues evenings ride when we were gaspings for breathe we went over a bloated possum on the side of the road. When one is breathing heavy and has no warning is one nasty thing.

    There was a poor dead dog and a snapping turtle today. So lets count the 2 armadillos and the dead possum. The raccoon doesn't count, that picture has been around.

    Only saw a dead possum and raccoon. Thought there would be more on a 62 mile ride. I have noticed a lot of turkey vultures around lately, though.

    More mink

    Saw another mink this morning. More photogenic than the first one.
