Our most frequent floaters always upload awesome pictures and videos from their float trips! The last two float trips they have taken they have spotted a baby soft shell turtle! It goes about swimming in the water for a few minutes then it decides to disappear in the bottom of the river burying itself beneath the rocks & sand. You don't see as many soft shells as you used to but they have been coming back over the years. Unlike most turtles, who have hard, bony shells, the spiny softshell has a leathery shell lacking bony plates, and some say this turtle resembles a pancake with legs. What turtles are your favorite?
