While this isn't the largest snapping turtle I've seen on the lake, he certainly is a contender. This turtle is around 3 feet long, snout to tail. He was enjoying one of the few sunny days we have had so far this summer. Keep an eye out for these snappers walking across your lawn or on your dirt roads. Early summer they come on shore to lay their eggs. In the State Park they have a turtle they think is 100 years old. She has been coming back to the same spot every year to lay her eggs.
