Dan Foster photographed this snapping turtle in Stow. Dan says the turtle "laid eggs in our front and back yard on three consecutive days in early June. She survived a run-in with our cat, who walked right up and was ready to pounce when I convinced her that this might not be such a good idea. Sadly, two nights later, all of the eggs in the back yard were dug out and consumed by an animal. During the same time period, I found a strip of roadside near a culvert at the Delaney project where there were at least 12 fresh turtle egg nests in a hundred-foot stretch of road."
