Oh, snap! Iowa DNR finds giant snapping turtle along road

Posted: Updated:

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources posted a picture to Facebook, saying they found a giant snapping turtle along a suburban street.

They said they want to remind people, "If you see one of these critters near the road and would like to move it, it's best to take the turtle across the road in the direction it was headed."

They add that you should NOT pick a turtle up by its tail. You should instead grab its back legs with its head facing away from you.
