Dinosaurs Mating

I saw a small wake in the water as I bicycled past a wood duck pond, and upon investigation I found two large snapping turtles in the throes of courtship and mating.

When I rolled past them an hour and a half later, they were still at it.

Female Snapping Turtles often have egg clutches sired by more than one male *and* can store sperm for months (and maybe a year or more).
