Box Turtle There are about 328 species of turtles worldwide, and 20 percent of them are found in the United States and Canada. Some of those are box turtles, which have a moveable hinge on their plastron (bottom shell) that allows them to retract inside the shell and close up—a great defense against predators such as skunks and raccoons. In North America, there are four species and 11 subspecies of box turtles. The turtles eat a wide variety of food, including slugs, snails, caterpillars, grasshoppers, mushrooms, berries and grasses. The average life span of a box turtle is 50 years.

Widely considered the greatest writer in the English language, William Shakespeare lives on through his many plays and sonnets, which are often quoted in everyday conversation. “To thine own self be true,” “lend me your ears” and “neither a borrower nor a lender be” are all phrases from Shakespeare’s works. Records indicate that Shakespeare was born on April 23, 1564, and died on the same day in 1616. Take a few minutes this April to brush up on some Shakespeare trivia: • Shakespeare’s known works include 38 plays, 154 sonnets and two epic narrative poems. • Shakespeare’s plays generally fall into three categories: comedy, tragedy and history. • “Hamlet” is Shakespeare’s longest play at 29,551 words. • The Globe Theatre in London is where Shakespeare and his acting troupe, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, performed many of his plays. The theater burned down in 1613 after a cannon shot off during a performance of “Henry VIII” caught the gallery roof on fire. • A replica of the Globe Theatre is located near its original site and hosts several Shakespeare productions each year. • Queen Elizabeth I, a generous supporter of drama and literature, reigned during most of Shakespeare’s life and attended many performances of his plays. • Shakespeare had three children with his wife, Anne Hathaway.
