LITTLE ROCK — Turtles are on the move all over Arkansas, and many can be found alongside roads in rural and suburban areas thanks to a wet, relatively cool spring that created excellent foraging areas in ditches and grassy areas beside the hustle of daily traffic. Many turtles are finishing up their annual breeding and egg-laying cycles, which also puts them on the move.
LITTLE ROCK – The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission unanimously approved new regulations today to regulate and more closely monitor the commercial harvest of aquatic turtles in Arkansas.
