What has this world come to?
It's not often that you'll see a group of young children holding this many snapping turtles. Except for my brothers and I back in the day or perhaps my cousins, I'm not too familiar with folks who are "that type of people." Yes, there is also a potential risk of danger, like when you ride a bicycle or go for a walk. Understanding and reducing the risk is key, and once knowledge is coupled with a healthy level of respect, rare things can occur, as illustrated in these photos.
These little ones are my tribe, and even if they never pick up another turtle or snake, I couldn't love them any more. Enjoy the photos, and enjoy the real, natural world when you can. Be blessed!
