I nearly stepped on this guy one day on a walk and before moving on slowly, he (she?) regarded me for a minute or two with that one big eye, turned and lumbered away. The design on the shell was mesmerizing and about the circumference of a large cantaloupe. You can see that his legs and neck were bright yellow--as if he had been dipped in that paint used to make traffic stripes on the road.
