I'll tell ya what hurts

I didn't get bitten, I didn't get scratched, but for the second time, I had my finger caught between its extremely strong tail and the spike on the back of its top shell. All I have to show for my incident is a small dot on the top of my finger by my knuckle. But when you touch it, it really hurts. Usually you don't want to pick snapping turtles up by their tail. It is harmful for them. but at work, most of the turtles have shell injuries, making it too harmful and painful for them to be picked up "properly"so we need to grab them by the tail and put are other hand under them to lift them out of the container. Needless to say they don't like this. K~
