Brothers Build Monster Snow Turtle. Internet Goes Crazy

A trio of brothers have put their town on the map after being a monster 12ft snow turtle in their back yard.

Austin, Trevor and Connor Bartz from New Brighton, Minnesota, slaved away in the snow from 14 November all the way through to 7 January, according to KARE 11. The final snowstopper was 12ft tall, 37ft long and 31ft wide.

But it's just the latest creation in a series of animal-themed snow sculptures, including a shark, a walrus and a pufferfish.

And you thought your snowman was impressive?
