My son found a baby Snapping Turtle when he was helping with some yard work at a neighbors. We kept him in an aquarium over the winter, but he was getting a bit big to keep so we let him go in a nearby swamp around May. Check out his claws. These animals can get to be 40 pounds and are REALLY nasty. It was interesting feeding and watching him for a while, though. His name was "Chainsaw." (5 years and 1466 days ago)

This little guy was found in New Mexico on the Road. This shot is after he was moved from the road to the other side of a fence. (5 years and 1466 days ago)
