"sometimes you find a plug that perfectly fits a hole you have, and it makes everything OK..."

I was standing in the yard this morning, trying to find a good signal for my cell phone...yes, our coverage IS that bad out here...when I spotted this female turtle preparing to lay her eggs. I think she is a snapping turtle, or 'snapper' as we call them, but I'm not fully conversant on the many types and species of turtles. Her shell measures maybe nine or ten inches from front to back. When I went back out a few minutes ago to get an accurate measurement, she was nowhere to be seen, so I suspect she has buried herself in the sandy soil, and is laying her eggs right now. There is nothing visible out there right now except for a hole in the ground measuring about an inch and a half.
