Video: Snapping Turtle Strolling

I was nearly home today when I saw this big old snapping turtle making its way into the street. I believe the least we can do is make sure these creatures make it safely so I stopped to make sure he made it across. While I was at it I made a video and snapped a few pictures. I also startled the poor guy.

Despite all that, he made it safe and sound to a comfortable spot. Maybe he's out to mate? Maybe we'll see some baby snappers making their way into the pond in a few months?

I'll let you know!
