New friend.

I met this guy while I was running yesterday. He was trying to climb a chain link fence. (It was not going well for him.) Do you see how big he is? I put my foot in the photo so you would have a sense of scale.

I tried to help him by showing him that going under the fence might be a better idea, but then he snapped at the fence and startled me.

I decided maybe he was better where he was.

I've heard of snapper turtles, but never actually seen one snap - guess you have new meaning for it.

I showed this to Sallie and her response was remembering her Dad saying "I'd rather face a rattlesnake than a large snapping turtle". They're not exactly known for being friendly.
