The ponds at the Arboretum all have signs around them warning people they're home to snapping turtles and to enjoy them from afar.
But one of the ponds has an area where you can sit right at the edge of the water and, if you're still, you can watch the snapping turtles, the big snapping turtles that could eat the tiny turtles of Jamaica Pond for a snack, slowly swim up and give you the eye as they come up for air.
And if you had a broomstick, it would just be too tempting to see if it's true what they say about snapping turtles and broomsticks. So leave those at home.
