Nature Facts:
Watch for olive-brown “pancakes” floating in the water at the edge of slow-moving, sandy areas of the stream. Take a closer look and you’ll find the “pancakes” have legs and a long neck with a snorkel nose at the top. These round, floating objects are actually Gulf Coast spiny softshell turtles, a species of special concern in North Carolina. These turtles have a soft, flat shell and can quickly disappear by burying in the sand. Please observe these special creatures from a distance because they can and will bite!
