Two kayakers captured footage of an enormous snapping turtle lounging on rusty chains within the Chicago River. The turtle obtained the nickname Chonkosaurus after one of many kayakers, Joey Santore, posted a viral video of the spectacle on Twitter.

Someone planted a bunch of native crops up the river from right here, too. I can solely surprise this issues been consuming. pic.twitter.com/u6bhlpo4p5
