Snapping Turtle

I was driving up the road to our cabin and spotted this snapping turtle crossing the road.

Unlike the smaller painted turtles that are found in our neighborhood, snapping turtles have a muscular build, can grow very large and have a very aggressive disposition.

While it may look like the snapping turtle is smiling, don't be fooled ...

This turtle charged my camera and tried to bite it.
