Swamp Monster

Remember when I was all "we *used* to have snapping turtles, but not any longer"?  All smug like that?  Well no more.  Because not too long thereafter, a giant effing snapping turtle showed up.   That's him.

And I didn't want to like him, but he was so peaceable looking floating around out there. Even though I know that's a giant lie, and they aren't very peaceful at all.  But he kind of floated and sunbathed and had fun.  But *I* wanted to float and sunbathe and have fun, and not with him.

So we got a trap, so we could relocate him down to the creek.  Sam was delighted - lots of disgusting baiting it with sardines, and burying it in the muck, and highly anticipated checking of the trap... and eventually we caught him.  That's him again - staring at us with his beady eyes and giant claws.

Not going to lie, I was kind of surprised it worked. But I'm very happy we're no longer sunbathing together.
