Brothers Build A MASSIVE Snow Sea Turtle, Put Your Snowman To Shame

Oh, you built a snowman? That's cute.

While you were busy getting into snowball fights over the holiday break, these brothers were busy turning their front yard in New Brighton, Minnesota, into a sea turtle -- a massive one made of snow:

Bartz brothers Austin, Trevor and Connor worked on the turtle from Nov. 14 through Jan. 7, reports KARE 11. The final work was 12 feet tall, 37 feet long and 31 feet wide.

Impressive as the turtle is, it's just the latest in a series of animal-themed snow sculptures.

Once, the trio built a shark so big they could ride it:

They've also constructed a walrus:

And -- because, why not? -- a pufferfish:
