My husband works in construction, and one day while he was digging he seen something moving in the ground. He hopped off his equipment and seen that there were several baby snapping turtles that had just hatched. They were so tiny, I can't believe he even seen them from where he was in the equipment. Luckily he did spot them. A construction site is no place for baby turtles. He brought them home with him and the next morning I called The Alabama Reptile Rescue Sanctuary to find out what we should do with them. The man I talked to was very nice and very informative. He suggested that we should just try to find a large body of water to set them free in. Luckily, we live relatively close to a huge lake and thats where we took them.
