Snapping Turtle Visitor

Yesterday morning I couldn’t go out the front door.  There was a large, old snapping turtle on our front porch backed right up to the door.  I took Misty out the garage door for her morning walk and then later took the above pictures from both outside and inside through the side light along the door.

Later in the day it crawled off into the flowers and shrubs between our Villa and the walk to our porch.  I checked this morning and it was still there, but I could only see portions of it as it was hidden under the shrubs.  Yes, it is still alive, Marcia got it to react and it moved its leg.  I have seen no signs that it laid any eggs, and it is a little late in the season for that.
