Snapping Turtle Visits East Silent Resort

On one lovely summer day at East Silent Resort a curious snapping turtle came onto our sandy beach to sun bathe. No, the snapping turtle did not want a golden tan like our human guest at East Silent Resort that day, rather the snapping turtle wanted to absorb some heat and light from the sun. Unlike humans, turtles cannot generate their own body heat, so they must find other ways to regulate their body temperature like sun bathing. Some of our guests were able to take a picture with the sun bathing snapping turtle. (The snapping turtle was not harmed, just a little grumpy from being disturbed)
