Why did the turtle cross the road? To get to the other side, away from curious humans. And if wandering away doesn't scare off the people, making frightening faces might.

I had originally misidentified this turtle as the more common Florida Red-bellied Cooter. Thanks to Jake Scott for correcting me.
