DON'T try to move an alligator snapping turtle out of the street. My love for animals got the best of me today and being the pro "turtle" relocator on the rural backroads could have been very bad! Image:Alligator Snapping Turtle2.jpg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I saw him in the middle of the road on a curve, so i stopped to pick him up and move him over to the other side of the road. I carefully placed my hands towards the back of him so his head couldnt swing back and bite me. The thing was like trying to lift a cinderblock! Within a split second he jumped and did a complete 180 degree turn in the air and was facing me...that is after he snapped and hissed! I jumped backward like a scared cat and screamed! I cautiously went back into my car and drove off. I drove back to see if he was still there about 10 minutes later and he had made it across the road. Crickey!!! Prissy lil Mad Rouge ain't afraid of nothing! He could have taken my whole hand....and it would bring a whole new meaning to typing one handed.
