turtle skulls and custard filled donuts

So I was at work last night, doing the turtle room. We have a huge snapping turtle there right now. I was looking at it's back feet and noticing that the foot is as big as the palm of my hand! I tried to get as close as I could to see if what I was seeing was true. It was. They are huge!
Then I was looking at his head. I can get a great view of the top of his head. I kept staring at it. Wondering what I could compare it to so someone could get a realistic size reference. The only thing that came to mind was a large custard filled chocolate donut. This was his skull only, without his beak and neck. I was pretty happy with the comparison, until I realized that it was kind of odd for me to compare one of my favorite donuts to the head of a huge reptile. K~
