Have You Ever Seen a Turtle Climb a Fence?

Over the last few mornings we have had a steady trail of snapping turtles climbing our septic bed to dig in the dirt/sand at the top and lay their eggs. This morning I noticed this one who had a different approach than the others. She seemed to be eyeing the vegetable garden instead.  Snapping turtle on it's way to the veg. gardenI took the above shots trying not to disturb her too much and when I walked back to the house, I turned around and saw her trying to climb the fence!Turtle climbing garden fenceOf course when I went back to take more pictures of her she acted like a statue again 🙂turtle trying to get into garden turtle trying to get into the gardenI never did see where she laid her eggs but I hope she had success somewhere!
