The other day there was a snapping turtle in my driveway, the kids ran over to see it and I yelled at them to stay away from it. They thought I was nuts because to them it was just a turtle. 

We get turtles in our yard all the time time because I live right next to a swamp and a pond. Normally we only see harmless painter turtles but from time to time a snapper comes along. Like this one right here which was in my backyard. I put a beer on it's back so you could see how big the snapper really was.
