One summer while out fishing, my older brother caught a snapping turtle. He brought it home and put it in a styrofoam cooler with a brick on the lid. All of our friends came around and we dared them to feed it a minnow. I was too scared to do it myself but would always watch when someone else would do it. They would hold the tiny fish pointed at the turtle’s face. It would slowly open it’s mouth and slowly extend it’s neck and then crunch down on the fish cutting it in half. The trick was to keep your hand steady and not flinch when it happened. When it started getting dark out we brought it back down to the river and let it go. At least the turtle got some free food out of the deal.
