Penny’s Pet Turtle

One autumn, several years ago, we found a wee baby snapping turtle.  He had hatched from his leathery egg not long before.  What a fascinating little creature!

We liked to turn him over and see his shell in the shape of a vest underneath.  He was a friendly little guy, and seemed to enjoy all the attention he was getting.

How do you do, handsome Little Snapper?

Some day you will grow big, but for the moment, you are just my size.

Come sit on my lap and lets be friends.

We called this visit “All creatures great and small” because – look who we found next.

A giant of a toad!

Grumph.  No, I most certainly will NOT sit on your lap.

Thank you very much.

And you shan’t sit on mine.
