Hi, I’m back!
I have been running into quite a few turtles this year, first in Maui, then in Toronto, and today in NY.
The poor turtle in NY was along the four-lane highway and I tried to make it change course.
When I drove back home, I checked and the turtle was not roadkill, so I guess it took my advice to turn around. The turtle was rather ornery as all snapping turtles are by nature. I did get it pointed the right direction, but it was pretty snappy to me. I know they have very long necks, so I was pretty careful. Being very dried out, I am sure that is why I was not bitten.
The turtles in Toronto in the above gallery, were at a nature preserve at the Brick Works. Being the nature buff that I am, I spotted the turtles for the other bloggers. Those two turtles had so many photos taken. I guess you could say they are now famous.
