Turtles at Toyota

Amanda Osmer Toyota Leave a Comment

In the Grappone Toyota parking lot there was a batch of freshly hatched snapping turtles. They were taking over the parking lot and would have been crushed by cars if they stayed where they were. A Grappone team member noticed these TINY creatures and helped them find their way to the river. There were at least a dozen of them. 30 minutes later a few team members went out to the parking lot to make sure they were all safe and found one more baby! Hopefully this little guy can find his family in the river!
