Okay, I know that the folks down south will think I am a drama queen with your gators and all, but we just pulled a 12 inch dia. snapping turtle out of our "wetland" today.
Alot of our land has a ton of sand on it and I have seen smaller ones often, laying their eggs in the sand banks. Two days ago on our walk, my dogs found a nest that another critter had opened and ate the turtle eggs (yeah!) of course they all had to try and eat the shells that were left behind. (yuck)
Anyway, I always worry about the dogs coming nose to nose with them, has anyone ever had an issue? We never have but ya never know!
