The town has been digging up and replacing sewer and water lines along Rt 149 (200 feet from my house). This has been going on for several weeks, but apparently Tuesday they disturbed this guy/gal. I had let Rita out and she was intent on a spot behind the middle section of fence. When I looked, my first thought was "how in the heck did that large, flat rock suddenly appear in my backyard?". Since it was resting and mud covered, you'll have to forgive my mistaken identity. Once I realized it was a large turtle, my next thought was to grab my phone and take pictures.
The turtle rested for about 10 minutes in the shade
I don't know where he ended up as I haven't seen him since. For all I know he has set up shop in the shade garden under the crabapple tree since that is very dense so I couldn't tell if a large pig or dog were in there. I'm guessing he found the swamp.
