Detroit public school kids engaged in BioKIDS activities
If you see turtle tracks, you might not see all of their five toes, but you will see the marks made by their large footpads. The tracks are almost oval in shape with the toes showing on one side of the oval. Sometimes the turtle's tail or shell will leave drag marks in the trail. When turtles walk, they drag their feet a lot and kick up a lot of dirt behind them.
