I would doubt this was a yearling. The young can be born many times of year, as nesting can happen many different times of year. The early spring young are usually the result of a late season egg laying where the babies hatch and wait out the winter in the nest. It's quite common for even cooler climates to have two laying times or more, where the first clutch hatches before fall and emerges, but the later clutch waits out the winter underground in the nest.

Snappers also will find water as a hatchling and then not leave it unless it dries up on them or becomes otherwise inhospitable. Their safety is in stealth and being in the water, land is dangerous and they avoid it, even adults get testy when they are on land.
