Mrs SmileMoon & Snapping Turtle

Mrs SmileMoon and I were out for our evening walk Saturday night when I spied a turtle up ahead on the edge of the road. As we got closer, we could clearly see it was a snapper - about 18 inches long! Mrs SmileMoon was not afraid to pick it up and bring it up to the yard for all the kids to see it!

 

After the obligatory stick-snapping and seeing how close the kids could get before it lunged at them, Mrs SmileMoon again picked it up and escorted it to the woods near where we'd found it.
