Believe it or not, snapping turtles aren't aggressive in the water and if they swim towards you, are probably just curious or they have been fed by people and are looking for a free meal (not your foot). You're more likely to get bit walking in to the water since they will bury themself and wait for food. If you step on ones head, I am sure it wouldn't appreciate it and may let you know. On land is different, they are vulnerable and feel the need to defend themself because they think you are a predator.
