I found this little hatchling in my yard yesterday. Little sucker bit me (Hard!) in the palm of my hand! So I am wondering if it is a snapping turtle? Anybody?

Deuteronomy 32:11
He is like an eagle that stirs up its nest. It hovers over it little ones. It spreads out it wings to catch them on its feathers.
