How to Pick Up a Snapping Turtle

Snapping turtle enthusiast Rolf shows us how to pick up an incredibly ferocious snapping turtle without being bitten. Rolf suggests the technique could be used to remove a snapping turtle from a busy road. It also looks like a pretty good way to be bitten by an enraged snapping turtle.

The video is a excerpt from Turtle Derby, and upcoming documentary by Todd Bieber about turtles (ferocious and otherwise), kids, and the environment. Bieber has been raising funds for the film on Kickstarter.
