Welcoming the Turtles to Pingry Hill

Pingry Hill's Newest Mascot: Mama Snapper

Pingry Hill’s Newest Mascot: Mama Snapper

It’s Snapping Turtle egg laying season and it’s in full swing up here on the Hill in Pingry Hill, Ayer. We’ve got a lovely Mama Snapping turtle that has carefully lay her eggs on one of our home lots. Don’t worry, we will not disturb her or her young and will carefully work around where she is until the babies are safely on their way out of the nest.

In the meantime, be careful of these turtles! They can bite off one of your digits! So if you see one of these turtles, stay away and don’t disrupt them or agitate them.
