Why did the turtle cross the road?

Why did the turtle cross the road?

Trick question: it didn't! I found this little snapper (Chelydra serpentina, I think) on the west shoulder of North Maple Street, about to head east across 2 lanes of heavy traffic. I picked it up, waited for a gap to open, dashed across, and set it down. As a reward, it peed on my hand.
