Wildlife Walkabout

Snapping Turtle

Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00518

Working hard at getting out and walking each day. Allison and I went for an early morning walk together. Along the way by the riverwalk we saw a couple and their child sitting near one of the plots that have flowers and bushes. As we approached the woman said that there was a snapping turtle laying eggs. sure enough, there was a fairly large snapping turtle there laying eggs. It is that time of year there they are leaving the lakes and going to lay eggs. I even saw one as I drove down a pretty busy road. I did not see it when I returned and that is a good sign. At least it was not hit.
