How did the Snapping Turtle cross the road?……….

………….With a little help from Cobra Commander.

Yes that’s right, Cobra Commander has a soft spot for wild things (probably why he fell for me). Being new to the country side we still get excited and point it out every time we see a critter. I pointed out the Snapping Turtle, the next thing I know CC stops the car and has sprung into action sprinting back up the road.

I followed with the camera, and here’s how it went;

All muddy and smelly

Maybe a little tap will get it moving in the right direction

Plan B; I'll blind side him, ready

Gotch ya!

The Snapping Turtle never did cross to the other side of the road,  but he was rescued and put safely back into the brush from where he came.
