For Turtle Lovers Only

My friend Sue Pierce sent me more photos of the Snapping Turtle she revisited yesterday in Dunham's Bay near Lake George.  She said she found this particular snapper, nicknamed "Mohawk" for the green mossy growth on its tail, in the exact spot she found him last Saturday when we paddled together on the turtle survey.  Her photos are so good, I just had to share them with turtle lovers everywhere!

There's no place like home.  Here's where Mohawk hangs out.

As Sue says:  Who wouldn't love this face?  ET phone ho-o-o-o-me!

Just hanging out, here in my spot.

How this turtle got its name: see the brush of green moss on the top of its tail?
