Thats great that you are able to salvage a lot of the roadkill eggs and then head start them, we have a lot of adult female snapping turtle road kills around here in the late spring during nesting time, and I was thinking about trying to hatch some eggs just for fun and then let them go in the river, not that the snapping turtles around here need any help, there is plenty around, unfortunately some people dislike them and go out of their way to hit them. A couple of weeks ago I helped a 4-5 inch snapper across the road, I had to straddle my truck over it to keep the car behind me from hitting it, and they had to go around me, which they probably weren't to happy about, but I'm sure they got over the 3 second inconvenience, and the turtle would have surely been smashed by the traffic before making it all the way to the other side of the road where the river was. They are cute when they are little before they get big and ferocious.
