The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center successfully released a 17-pound snapping turtle back into the wild that was found on top of a frozen pond last year.
On December 22, the 17-pound turtle was found on top of a pond in Lamplighter Park, according to the BluePearl Veterinary Clinic in Eden Prairie. Usually at that time in the year, snapping turtles are resting at the bottom of lakes in a hibernation-like state called brumation.
When it was found, it was covered in mud and had a very large shell deformity, as well as an abnormal lung.
The WRC cared for the turtle for 162 days before releasing it back to its home pond, according to a Facebook post on Tuesday.
