In the woods: turtle crossing

I found this turtle trying to cross the road on my way home after work. I was the obnoxious person who put their car’s hazard lights on and stood in the middle of the road until the turtle was safely on the other side. Once I walked up close to him, he took off and was not wasting any time. It’s that time of year!  Watch out for them in the roads.

  2. What would have teeth like that and try to eat him?
