Hoping you brake for reptiles

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - April 22, 2014

Wildlife officials in Vermont hope people will adopt that attitude.

It's breeding season for salamanders, frogs, turtles, and other reptiles.

Drivers are being asked to slow down and keep an eye out for the little creatures.

People who want to help turtles cross the road are encouraged to use a shovel or a stick.

After all, they're not called snapping turtles for nothing.
