Mug Shots

If you plan on walking our property line down near the swamp, watch your step. We have some ornery neighbors down that way and they aren't shy about walking across our land.

Looks like it's been doing some muddin'.

I so love snapping turtles. Something about their irritability and sliminess is appealing to me. Some days I want an excuse to be so ornery.

Cindy,
I was impressed by the amount of muck this one was sporting.

woodswoman,
Snapping turtles do have a certain appeal...if only they didn't smell so bad ;)
