Biting the hand that feeds??

I tell ya! I started out in the mammal - turtle room. Another volunteer and I tag teamed the 38 turtles we have at the center now. 7 or so were snapping turtles. And They wanted a piece of us! I don't know if this is a fact, but they like to not only throw their heads back and snap, but jump up too. I have all of my fingers and my nose this morning, but last night, I was unsure I was coming home with any!

Then into Ward D! The lady mallards were wanting to take it out on someone, so I guess it was me. One bit both of my hands over and over again. She would snap at them and peck at them. Another one, just got a hold of the top of my hand and clamped down on the skin. She twisted in a circle and left a round mark on the top of my hand. Ouch.

Otherwise, more of the same. Woodpeckers snapping. Squirrels chattering. Me humming another tune. K~
