Baby turtles

Was walking back to my car after taking an exam and another student was stopped, looking down. As I approached I noticed the 2 baby turtles. One was in its shell but the other was headed toward the road. I put them both in my travel mug and escorted them to the river. Waited for a large garter snake to clear out before putting them down although I'm not sure if they are interested in turtles. Better safe than sorry. One went right for the water, the other refused to come out, not that I blame it!
