I was out hiking and snapping photos on a beautiful Saturday at the Edwin B Forsythe Wildlife Refuge when in the distance I saw something, I wasn't sure what... maybe a goose or a dog? As I got closer, I could see it was neither, it was some kind of reptile and finally I could see it was a turtle... a huge turtle. The biggest turtle I've seen in the wild!

As it turns out it is a "snapping" turtle and these turtles are strong and can move pretty quickly, especially their fierce jaws which can do some damage! Keep your fingers and toes away from his chompers!
