Snapper


While on the Neuse River in Raleigh, I came across this huge snapping turtle who had climbed straight up a really steep bank, but had gotten a root around his neck and couldn’t continue up any further. I watched him struggle for a little bit, and then he noticed me and panicked. He slid backwards a little, which freed him from the root, but then sent him tumbling head over feet all the way back into the water.
