Look Out for Snapping Turtles!

This is egg-laying season for turtles, so please be on the lookout.

If you see a Snapping Turtle in the road, please do not try to move it. They bite, and they move much faster at close range than you might think. Never pick one up by the tail — could damage their spine.

Ron Shields took the photo above — always a nice result when Ron and wildlife see eye to eye. (Thanks, Ron!)
