Surprise Visitor

Wildlife is everywhere on a farm so I shouldn't be surprised when it shows up in the yard.
 But this one was a bit of a shock.
 Considering we are on top of a very high hill, way above the creek, I just didn't expect a snapping turtle in the yard.
 He was a cute thing and not all that shy about getting a picture taken.
But he was also pretty quick.  When we came back from feeding the goats, he was gone.  Hopefully, he made it back to the water.

Interesting pattern on the shell.

They can be dangerous!

I found one of them in the middle of the road last summer, and had to use a crowbar (the only "safe" thing in the truck to move him with) to get him to the side of the road. He was NOT a happy camper!
