Snapping turtle nesting 2019

When I looked at our webcam yesterday I saw these three bumps.  Went down and saw momma turtle planting her eggs in the hole closest to the firepit.

We are not sure if she dropped her eggs in all three holes or not so we will put up some marker around the one and hope we can protest at least some of them.

The eggs will hatch anywhere from 60-90 days they say.  We’ll keep an eye out at the end of September.
