Here's what happens when that snapping turtle you're holding tries to give you a big kiss.
While everyone likes to have a pet no one else has, this particular animal doesn't just nip at you like a puppy.
Whether or not this is a pet remains to be seen, but when a snapper rears its head back like this, make sure you're far enough away that you don't lose your lips!
The lovely and talented BayouBelle almost turned into a snapper-snack!
While this probably isn't the first turtle she's handled, we would still rather watch her hunting and fishing than trying to get a snapper off her nose.
Turtles aren't to be trifled with!
