A reader submits:

“My husband found this juvenile common snapping turtle under the steps of our house leading to the basement on Friday. We’re in the middle on Columbia Heights so there isn’t water anywhere nearby–we have no idea how he/she made it to our front yard. After some research by me and some fascinated viewed by the kids, we took a trip to Rock Creek near Pierce Mill to give it a new home. It settled into the water immediately and seemed very relieved.”
