monster from the vasty deep

It's been raining a lot lately, as I may have mentioned.

Recently, I met this creature on the driveway. I'm glad I stopped and took a few shots with the phone camera, because by the time I got back with the real camera he was gone. They're terrible pictures and they won't enlarge, but here you can see this terrapin-ish fellow in comparison to the jeep wheel.

Here's a closer look.

He didn't even draw in his head when I got right in his face:

But when I came back ten minutes later, he was gone, leaving no tracks to indicate where the water was driving him.
