Cyclist surprised to find massive Red-eared slider turtle at Khatib, and escorts it back to Lower Seletar Reservoir

Stomper Marc was out cycling on Monday night (Apr 4) when he noticed this huge turtle wandering about near a reservoir in Khatib.

Marc, who sent in several photos and clips of the beautiful creature, said he later escorted it back into the reservoir.

Said the Stomper:

"At around 11.35pm on Monday evening, I was out biking at Khatib Reservoir and doing some quick exercises when I noticed some movement on the ground.

"I thought it was just some kind of round leaf being blown about by air. But I wasn't sure about it, so out of curiosity I went to check it out.

"I was surprised to see a huge full-grown Red-Eared Slider Turtle. It was approximately 10.5 to 12 inches long.

"It was not just me who got surprised by this creature. This marbled cat was also watching over the turtle as it was crawling and wandering about."
