Snapping turtles

I noticed baby snapping turtles making their way out of their nest in our front yard.
The mother turtle would have laid the eggs sometime in the fall.
We've seen baby turtles moving across our property before, but this is the first time we've seen them emerging from the nest.

One of the turtles is already making its way away from the nest.

And a third turtle was making its way across the driveway, heading toward our pond.  

We tried moving it out of the driveway, thinking it would be safer.  But the instinct to find a body of water prevailed, and the turtle headed again across the driveway on its way to the pond.
