This baby Blanding’s turtle, named M3, had a rough start in life after its mother was hit by a car in Morris and had to be euthanized.

Five of the injured turtle’s eggs survived the accident, however, and three hatched in an incubator.

M3 is now being cared for by the Forest Preserve District of Will County and it eventually will be released into the wild or kept for a breeding program.

For more information on M3 and the program, visit bit.ly/turtleprogram.
