The following photos may be a little terrifying, but keep in mind that these guys (or gals)are a part of nature too. They don’t attack people!

Snapping Turtle

Who couldn’t love a face like that?!!

Snapper laying eggs

These photos were sent to me by an area fishing guide. The turtle was laying eggs in his yard!


Cookin’ for the Creek!   The whole ordeal took about 3 hours.  She laid 13 eggs that I saw.  That part alone took about 30-45 minutes.

Snapping Turtle

It was way cool as alwaysJ.  She just gets to shaken when she leaves the nest.  Goes in circles around nest a few times then off for the creek lickity-split!
