For today’s Fun Photo Friday, I bring you this pic I took of a rather large snapping turtle I found in my yard! He/she is in a 5-gallon bucket, so that gives you some idea of the scale — must have been about a foot wide.
I didn’t really like the idea of him hanging around my yard — snapping turtles bite! So I relocated him across the street to a lovely marshy area where he’ll feel right at home.
Don’t worry: No animals were harmed in the filming of this incident.
