No Means No

on

I guess this guy didn’t realize that no means no. Found these two box turtles in a sticky situation in my parents’ front yard. The male’s feet and…boy bits…were stuck inside the female’s shell that was clamped tightly closed. I had to pry her open just enough to free the male and send him on his way. She is still sitting in the yard sealed up tight. I’m sure his pride is hurt and I doubt he’ll make any more mating attempts this season.picstitch
