Poetry and Identification

June 30, 2013 | Sherry Samuels

Sarah, our resident poet, was asked to take photos of our painted turtles for  identification purposes. Below is what showed up on my desk. can you identify the turtles based on the poem and the photos? (The name of each turtle is underlined).

Oscar is oval. He’s first on the left. He’s the biggest we have And makes quite a mess.

Exhibit is round, She’s shaped like a dot. She matches her tank mate Who’s covered in spots.

Shelly is heart shaped, She’s the smallest we have. She once lived downstairs But is now in Biolab.

 Oval like Oscar, But smaller by far. Our last painted turtle Is at home in the RHR.

 If you have questions And can’t tell us apart, Look at our pictures Up here on the chart!
