This past few days I've seen some odd things. Chipmunks chasing squirrels twice its size, thunderstorms that looked like strobe lights and a little wandering dog that stopped by our house. I've even seen turtles crossing the highway just up the street from me.

Today though I saw something I'd never expect to see. Today, turtles decided to lay their eggs on my front yard.

We recently moved into a new house, and the entire front yard is sand, much like a beach, and just across from us is a pond, which I'm guessing is where the turtles reside.

So I'm wondering what do you guys think should be done? Should I go out and make sure these eggs survive, and when the time comes help the turtles in their epic crossing, or just leave it be and let nature do its thing? Oh and anyone else have something like this happen?

I'll try to get some pictures if anyone wants to see.
Update!
Well we called an environmentalist and he came by today. We decided to dig up all the eggs we knew of and move them to a safer location due to the construction that is going to be happening on our property. Ill have new pictures up in a moment.

Don't beat the turtles into a bloody pulp. And leave them be.

Pics please. Don't touch em but put a fence or a sign around them to make sure noone steps on them.

^ Umm...if you put a fence around them, how will the mommy and daddy turtles get to them?

And yeah! Pictures!

And uh, call some kind of local environmental group or something, many the humane society, and ask them what to do. They should have some good advice for you.

Photobucket is being quite unresponsive so I'll do my best to get these pictures up but it may be a little bit.

Leave them be.

But maybe put a little sign or something warning people to watch where they step =)

Make one your pet turtle and name him Squirtle and as he grows change his name as if he was evolving. Squirtle, Wartortle then Blastoise.

I was thinking that, but I'd also need something for him to battle... any ideas?

Just let nature do it's thing. Observe it but do not interfere in any way. And why would you call some organization about it?

Operator: hello
You: some turtles laid there eggs in my yard
Operator: Congrats... don't kill them.

Well I think snapping turtles are endangered... so we have the fate of a species on our yard!

But yeah, We';; probably put up a fence, when they hatch help them over, then leave it at that. We have raccoons and foxes who would dig these up in seconds.

Don't help them cross. They'll become dependent on humans to make it to the water, which will do a LOT more harm than good.

Well the reason I want to do this is because of the road. I'll probably let them get to the road, pick them up and put them on the other side of the road. They can then find their way to the pond.

Ohh ok. That's a good idea, actually. Make sure you don't get hit by a car, now.

First off, lay off the pot.

Second, rape them/kill them/go to the doctor/it's AIDS.

I would definently call the local wildlife department. The best you could do is just to leave them alone in the first place.
