Reptilian Repose

We have our own “Brutus” the snapping turtle living in the pond this year. I normally only see him (or her) in the spring at egg-laying time, but I was surprised to see that he dragged himself up onto the little sunning rock for a nap. I often see several little painted turtles sharing the rock, but this monster took up the whole cabana.

    On our morning walk around a local lake, we look forward to the sunning turtles. In our part of the world, we call snapping turtles “cooters.”

    My daughter calls them monsters and informed me she won’t be letting her dogs swim in the pond anymore.
