Thanks for the great shot Paulinskill River Photography!These days, the Sun is in the same part of the sky as the Dog Star (Sirius). They rise and set together, actually aligning on July 23rd. Because the Dog Star was so bright, the ancient Romans thought it gave off heat, adding to the Sun's warmth, and called this hot time (20 days before and after the alignment) dies caniculares or "days of the dog star". Even so, we still think "dog days" comes from dogs having fun, chasing balls in lakes. 🙂

One of New Jersey’s native turtles is the Eastern Box Turtle. It has a high, dome-shaped upper shell (carapace) and a hinged bottom shell (plastron) that allows the turtle to fully close its head and legs inside. Their shells can vary in color but are usually brownish-black with yellowish-orange splotches, spots or lines. Eastern Box Turtles are listed as a Species of Special Concern in New Jersey. Populations are currently declining because they are vulnerable to deteriorating environments, habitat changes and are often taken from the wild for use in the illegal pet trade.
