I love the look of menace in this picture that says "any closer and I'm going to have your fingers". I have always been fascinated by snapping turtles, this one must have been a good age, the shell was about 18 inches long. I always look upon them with great respect knowing that ones of this size are usually quite old (30 - 50 years) and life would not have been easy for them. They go about their seasonal business probably not even knowing the advances that we as humans have made in their life time.
