Mud or Snapping Turtle trying to Get Outta the Road

While driving through the North Ga mountains of Fannin County today, me and my daughter came across this cute little rascal. If you come across one of these i would recommend not picking it up or trying to pet it. Around these parts we call these critterd snapping turles or mud turtles, i have heard folks around here say that they will bite you. I suppose that is where the name snapping turtle originated. This was on the road that runs along Noontootla creek, it is a beautiful drive, the towering Hemlocks and the rushing creek with mini-waterfalls and rapids are gorgeous. Just be careful to watch out for the snapping turtles.
