Many of Connecticut's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Connecticut's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Shelton Wildlife Removal Tip: How do I know if there are baby squirrels in the attic? If you have baby squirrels in the attic, you’ll know about it. Before long you’ll hear these creatures, in most cases long before you see them, with the very first symptoms of a infestation being sounds such as chirping as the mother and babies communicate with each other, scratching as both mother and young scramble around in and out of the property, and ‘bumping’ as they clumsily make their way around the crawl spaces and voids within your attic. You may even spot the squirrel if you are lucky, clambering in and out of the home around the roof exterior. If you stand on the outside of your property, you may notice staining or marks leaving a trail behind the animal, and if you spot the squirrel itself, try to get a good look at the underbelly. If you can spot nipples on the animal, there’s a good chance she’s recently had young, young she’s currently hiding in your attic. Finally, you may be able to smell the squirrel family. To be more specific, squirrel urine. If you can get into the attic, the smell will be pungent and will get worse as temperatures rise.

Shelton Animal News Clip: The Common Connecticut Snapping Turtle - The common snapping turtle is from the turtle family known as Chelydridae, and is a large turtle that is usually found in fresh water. It is typically found in the areas of Mexico, Rocky Mountains, Canada, Florida and Nova Scotia among others. It should be noted that this is the only species of turtles that is found in North America, despite that fact that its name might indicate that it is found in various parts of the world. Therefore, when referring to the common snapping turtle, it ought to be noted that the turtle referred to is that found in North America.

The turtles are known for having a highly mobile neck and head. They can also be identified from their beak like jaws and out of water belligerent disposition. Their mobile head and neck has earned them the name serpentina, which means that they are like snakes. The lifespan of these turtles, if they are in the wild is estimated to be thirty years. On the other hand, if in captivity, the turtles are estimated to live for over forty seven years.

Anatomy - In most cases, the adult turtles have upper shells or carapace that measure up to fifty centimeters. However, these shells usually measure between twenty five centimeters and forty seven centimeters. The turtles usually weigh between 4.5kg and 16kg. However, it should be noted that some turtles have been found to weigh up to thirty four kilograms.

Ecology - Common Connecticut snapping turtles usually live in areas like streams, shallow lakes and shallow ponds among others. They like to stay in the water, and they sometimes be seen to bask or float on the water, with only their upper shells exposed. If the water is shallow, the turtles will bury their body in the mud and only leave their head exposed. The turtles will stretch their long and flexible neck and head to the surface occasionally, in order to breathe.

When they need to lay eggs, they will travel long distances to reach a new habitat. Some of the factors that might drive them to lay their eggs in another area include pollution, overcrowding and lack of food among others. These turtles have been observed to travel far and in certain instances, they might travel far away from water sources, in order to find a suitable place to lay their eggs. They usually lay their eggs between June and July, but mate right from April to November. Interesting to note is that the female turtle can hold sperm for various seasons and it can keep using it where necessary. The turtles usually lay their eggs in sandy soil, and can lay between twenty five and eighty eggs a year. After they have laid the eggs, they use their hind feet to drag them into the nest and then cover them with sand for protection, and to enhance incubation. Incubation time ranges between nine to eighteen weeks, depending on the temperature. The turtles have been described as omnivores, since they feed on both plants and animals. They like to hunt and can eat anything that they can safely swallow.
