Most of the summer this is what we get in our yard during hot spells, they make there way from the swamp to the pond, but not without the dogs worrying them to death. Little do the dogs know but this snapping turtle could take one of there legs off with one bite. They still insist on barking and barking and barking at them. Poor turtle he is just trying to cool off. He is actually very small compared to most of them. I took this with my cell phone and didn't have time to put something in it to gauge his size. His head is probably at least 6 inches around. Well, that is all the excitement I have for you today boys and girls!
