Today, as I approached the stop sign at the edge of my street, I saw a snapping turtle attempting to cross the street. I immediately stopped the car. Getting out of my car, I was sure the turtle was dead. But no, it was only teasing. I went back to the car and put on John’s gloves. It was a sturdy pair! I picked the turtle up by the far end (tail end) of the shell and carried it across the street. I put it down in the grass, and it scurried away. By the time I went to get the camera, it had entered the retention-pond prairie.
Good thing I happened along! That is a very fast-paced street!!
