What would you do if a giant snapping turtle showed up in your backyard? Well, this family let it be, watching it through the windows, the kids really excited, naming her "Snippy". After a rough storm in the night, the father came out to check the damage and found what looked like little golf balls on his stairs. Turns out - Snippy left her eggs right there.

The family took care of the eggs, feeling a strong need to protect them and help nature. "It was like a Horton moment, you know?" the father laughs. The kids continued to be excited, and after the eggs hatched, they named every single one of the baby snapping turtles. It's so incredibly adorable - both the kids being so overjoyed and the baby turtles getting to not only live but being let go into the wild by the loving family.

Editor's Note: The video includes a few "rough" words, the hatching of two cockatiel chicks, bird vomit, and popular music, all of which some people may find slightly gross. But if you can stomach the aforementioned, it is definitely worth watching!
