Worth sharing from Ira Goldfine who volunteers at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens:
When I got down to the Discovery Garden this morning there was this big hullabaloo at the Flatbush Avenue gate. It turns out a huge snapping turtle -- probably 100+ years old had strolled from the flooded Prospect Park lake and was lost and got across Flatbush Avenue somehow withoutn getting killed -- it was snapping at everything in sight until they put a garbage can over it. The turtle used to be in Japanese Garden pond but they moved it to the lake in the park a while ago. What a scene it caused.
