Our broken down pool is a home to all sorts of critters this year!
I’m glad this snapping turtle is little. We have come close to the big ones, and boy, are they mean!
You can click on the photo to get a better look at those claws. My girl has a glove on to hold this little one because I don’t want her getting any turtle-borne salmonella! (And she washed her hands afterwards, too.)
So far we have found a toad, a frog and this snapping turtle in the pool ruins. I haven’t seen any snakes yet this year. They’re probably waiting for the warm weather to arrive. Last night it was so chilly and windy that it felt like it was time to go shopping for Halloween costumes and carve pumpkins! Please summer, come to us soon.
Are you seeing the sun? Is it warm, or even hot where you are? Can you send some to us?
