Meeting a Snapping Turtle Story
In North Dakota when I was a little girl we had Snapping Turtles. They found their home near rivers, and lakes. One spring when I was a little girl the river overflowed and our backyard was flooded with about a foot deep. What an exciting adventure for a five year old! When my mother wasn’t looking I snuck out to see how different my backyard looked. Yes, I got in trouble!
When the water receded it left a surprise! There in the muddy grass was a huge Snapping Turtle! It was about the size of a tire. My little brothers, sister and I rushed out to meet it. My Mother rushed out to get us back into the house. Snapping Turtles SNAP!
