Turtles: Irwin's Snapping & Loggerhead Sea

Not only was this turtle full of personality but he was swimming with the the archer fish.  The archer fish spit (launch seems like a better word) water at insects on land and knock them (crickets on a stick in this case) into the water to eat.  Amazing.  The National Aquarium in Baltimore had quite an amazing number and variety of turtles.  I happened to be just looking over the pool rim when the enormous sea turtle swam up.  I have to say that it was pretty exciting.
