A box turtle, one of the species effected by Ranavirus.

It sounds like the plot to an ill-conceived horror movie: we don’t know where it came from, we don’t know how it spreads, but it always kills.

Movie or no, that’s whats really happening to Maryland’s turtles and frogs with the RanavirusScott Farnsworth, a graduate research assistant, and professor Richard A. Seigel, both of the Towson University Biology Department, join us to talk about the virus and what it does.

If you see animals exhibiting this behavior please, contact the state.
