I have a crazy turtle

Hercules, like no other box turtle in the world I know of, chases dogs!

Whenever Denali or Cinderella (lab and husky) come near, Hercules goes ballistic trying to bite the nose poking through his fence.

This afternoon I sat on the porch steps watching the drama and when the dogs came to visit me, Herc made a beeline across his yard, head held high to see us above the plants, racing for all he was worth. I wonder what he would do if he actually caught a dog, or heaven forbid, a raccoon. (That really worries me.)

Seeing a box turtle run is way up there on the bizarro-scale!
