One of the most disregarded species in the pond is the snapping turtle. They are a very important part of the eco system and need to be present. They are also good eating if the mood should strike you or you are starving to death. I grew up as a kid eating them in stews and different recipes but they are best when slow cooked. In general you’re best off to leave them be and help them across the road when you see them struggling but DO NOT pick them up. If you have to move one use a shovel and coax it along.
