Something you don't expect to find... @ 07:26 am

A baby snapping turtle was in a puddle near our driveway. If he stayed there, he would have gotten run over! I took some pics of him but I'm too tired to put them on the comp yet. I'll do that when I wake up.

I picked up the poor little thing and moved it to the pond. It's supposed to be 100f today, so the puddle would be gone tomorrow anyway. The shell was only about 2" long.

Well now I know not to wade in the pond! I didn't know we had snappers in there!

There's a pond by my parents' place I won't go near.

There was a HUGE snapper having a standoff with a bull there once.

The turtle won.

Like you'd ever wade in that, anyway. *I* wouldn't.

It's *green.* So green that if you didn't know water was under there, you'd swear it was some kind of strange field.
