Snapping Turtle Omelets


Although our sideyard is a nursery for Snapping Turtles, it is also a buffet for the local raccoons. 

This is a small fraction of the raided eggs in the yard. The turtles' strategy is to lay as many eggs in as many places so that a few get through.

Judging from all the Snapping Turtles next door at the Celery Fram, the strategy appears to be working.
