My wife walked out into the backyard yesterday because our little yappers were barking.....and didn't sound exactly right. They had found this HUGE nasty-ass snapping turtle. 20 - 25 lbs. and mad as a hornet coz the dogs were harassing him. If he had got hold of one it wouldn't have turned out well.....for the dog. The photos don't show exactly how big he is....but check out his toenails....they were almost and inch long. Funny thing is....the nearest body of water is 1/4 mi away and he'd have to cross a busy road. Finally got the mofo dogs to leave him alone and he scurried (yes, scurried....they're fast) off into the woods. Edit: It is a common snapping turtle, 20 - 25 years old.
