Snapping Turtle

We were driving down the road out in Irmo, SC, and almost ran into this snapping turtle. It was in the middle of the road, so we decided to turn around and rescue him. He was quite large, and tricky to move because his neck was very long and he kept whipping it around to try to bite us (Jordan and I both took turns moving it). Also his long toenails were scraping against our hands.
