Eastern Snapping Turtle (blowing bubbles)

A belated happy “World Turtle Day!” I spotted the following Eastern Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina serpentina) at Huntley Meadows Park, a 1,425 acre wetland area in Fairfax County, Virginia USA.

The following slideshow features a time-series of six photos showing the snapping turtle blowing bubbles in the water. Do turtles play? (I liked to use a drinking straw to blow bubbles in a glass of milk when I was a child.)
