yesterday rach and i flew out the door and looked back to see a little piece of prehistoria on our own doorstep. not quite knowing whether our visitor was a good thing or a bad thing, 'we' decided that the best possible thing to do in this situation was to:

ladies and gentlemen i present to you king asa the alligator snapping turtle:
