Turtle on the road

On the way to Dover yesterday I took some friends of Lily's home to Amherst and just as we drove past Flayvors of Cook Farm (fantastic ice cream) I saw some people on the left on the side of the road, and garbage bag floating on the right. So I slowed down a little and was glad I did, because the garbage bag turned to be what I think was a huge snapping turtle crawling into the field next to the road. Yikes! They get up to 15 inches, I gather. This guy was really big, like the size of a bike helmet.

  1. Yes, a snapping turtle but NOT an Alligator snapping which is found in the Mississippi River. See the "Minn of the Mississippi" by Holling.
