Snapping turtle in Steam Hollow, New York, USA
This turtle had apparently been caught by a fish hook, in the side image close up you can see the hook in his mouth. A kind Postal Worker (yes on duty) helped me to get this large creature off the road, as I was not successful on my own. He was stubborn, and each time I attempted to prod him with a small broom, he fought so hard he flipped to his back! The two of us were able to keep him in one direction back to the water side of the road which he was headed for until we came along. Not the largest I have encountered, but definitely the most cranky!
