Snapping Turtle

My nephew sent me this picture. I have a funny feeling that he knows what this is, but just in case. It is a snapping turtle. Be careful handling these guys. Even the young ones are grouchy. If you handle one of these without a net take a hold of the end of the tail and hold it away from your legs. I have seen large specimens break broomstick handles. This guy makes his living eating fish, and birds.

Snapping Turtles are grouchy.

Snapping turtles have a spiny tail, and a grouchy disposition.
