I like turtles, that being said, I will avoid running over one if at all possible, to avoid damage to my vehicle or worse, especially on a bike.

But to those who find it amusing just to run over one for the hell of it...

Thanks Shihan, You just saved what was prob. a female turtle looking for a place to lay her eggs. Males don't leave the water unless it's to find a mate. They can take a finger off of you faster than you can blink an eye. God Bless

Tango, i saw a turtle that might have given that big vehicle you were running a bit of trouble. It was approximately 5 feet in diameter & was chained to a dumpster. Dude caught it in a net on a feeder for Arkabutla lake; it was to be sold to a casino for display. The zoo peeps estimated it was over 100 years old. Dude caught a similar one before & sold it to the Memphis zoo.

It was the black & yellow kind of snapper.
Dead Bears, the only good kind.

Those alligator snapping turtles are just cool! They get HUGE too!! I saw at the Hot Springs aquarium that weighed over 200lbs abd was said to be over 200yrs old, and still growing about 1lb a year. Fascinating creatures. They just lay there on the bottom of the lake with their moughts wide open and dangle a wormlike growth in their mouth until a little fishy comes up to feed,snap!! Their jaw pressure is supposed to exceed 1000lbs per square inch.
