This weekend my girlfriend and I were on our way home. It was quite hot Saturday. We saw a rather large snapping turtle on the side of the road slowly drying up. We stopped and I took him to the grass before he almost bit me. My g/f went home and got a bucket, while i dropped water from a water bottle on him. We grabbed him and put him in a rubber tub and transported him to a nearby stream. I hope he will survive in his new environment.

Such bravery deserves its dues. I hope you enjoy your new custom rank that can be found beneath your name.

Ah, cold water on the shell, such a delightful sensation that elicits from me the pangs of nostalgia for my youth. But I digress. Keep up the good work.

That's very cool. When I was a kid I found a baby snapping turtle (Maybe 2" across) on the road near my grandpap's farm. He was so weary that when I picked him up he didn't fight. So I took him home and put him into an aquarium. By the next summer he was the size of a dinner saucer and outgrew the home I gave him so off he want back into the pond.

Well, you must have taken good care of him! I havent seen too many turtles lately. Then again, they do a good job of hiding!
