On the Road

Carl found this snapping turtle on the side of the road. I'll admit that the turtle has a certain charm about him, so I wonder what drove him from his watery home. Perhaps he was on a journey of self discovery.

More than likely, though, he was on some ugly duckling adventure. Having been ostracized by all the pretty red-eared slider turtles, he was out to find his own pond to lurk in. Unlike misery, ugly doesn't always like company.

Thanks for the photo, Carl.
