Would you pick up a Snapping Turtle?

    Specifically an Alligator Snapping Turtle. I mean I've picked up softies, box, painted etc. But I never effed with the Alligator.

    I saw one crossing the road today. Alligator Snapper.
    Not a Common Snapper. The prehistoric fker with the big head and jaws.

    I stopped to give it time and I really wanted to pick it up. I didn't eff with it. Hope it's ok.

    If you can find a decent sized stick, poke them in the snout and they'll latch onto it. Then just drag them little dinosaurs off to the side.

    Broome would have petted it on the head then wondered where his fingers had gone five seconds later.

    I passed by a monster turtle a week or three back. It was trying to cross the road and I only saw him once I was almost past him. About the size of a manhole cover.

    Some one must have moved him 'cause he wasn't there when I came back and he wasn't smashed.

    When you do pick one up, make sure you hold it at arms length. First time I tried to help one, the little emmeffer pissed all over me.

    No good deed......

    Tail is not a good place as it could cause injury. Pick it up by the back of its shell as far back as possible.

    Grab the shell just above the rear legs. That's the safest place to put your hands.

    It's weird because Alligator Snapping turtles aren't suppose to be around here. But this dude had the big ridges in his back and much bigger head than the common variety. He didn't look right!




    (And yes, turtle is delicious.)
