Snapping Turtle - Rick Stankiewicz

Snapping Turtle – Rick Stankiewicz

Last Friday was the first day that I noticed any Snapping Turtles  laying eggs with just
one showing up.  Today, there were up to at least 5 in my front and backyard
area and they showed up late (mid-morning) and some are still out there now (7 pm)
I have never seen this sort of behaviour before, but it is still cool.  I
don’t think they could wait any longer to start laying?
