Day 28

Day 28 - A picture of something you're afraid of

Snapping Turtles.  Want to see someone run?  Let me see one of these things.

Notice how it isn't hiding in it's shell?  That is because they are scared of nothing.  That turtle wants nothing more than to break free and chomp that arm off.

My parents have a pond on their property, and these things live in it.  I have watched one take down a entire goose.  I am scared to death of them.  In fact, I came home from work one day and found one in my parent's front yard.  It had crawled from the pond area, up a hill, across a driveway, and into their yard.  I freaked out and called a friend to come get it.  

It isn't like my parents live in some swamp either.  They have a house in the woods, with a pond that somehow has these horrible snapping turtles that live in it.  

Ugh! Just the thought of them freaks me out.

  1. Dude, I came across a snapping turtle once, they are SCARY! I'd rather fight a T-Rex.
