My neighbor is a Detroit Firefighter and one of their fire companies responded to a house fire and gained entry through an upstairs window. There was an open top aquarium/cage sitting under the window that the second guy through stepped in and he came out with 2' alligator latched onto his leg.

A friend had a couple of six-foot iguanas who would run up to and slam into the screen door when someone came up to the porch. Few knocked.
Wow, those are some serious snapping turtles ! I didn't know that they could grow so fast.

Fear of turtles? Well, if you encounter one in the wild, take 3 large steps backwards. You then will have 20 mins to figure out your next move. I kid, but really? My wife is afraid of frogs, and crickets, and anything that jumps. So, once a year or so I chase her around the yard with a bullfrog. Ok, not really...geez I need to go to bed.
God Bless America!!

I don't know if it's the right species (or even genus), but generally it's a bad idea to disturb wildlife (ESPECIALLY turtles) like that. I know that turtles are threatened in many places...
Just thought I should share for future reference...and because that might have been illegal on many levels.
