Well I certainly never expected to have a live model for this one as I live no where near water or swamp... However, my neighbor brought this turtle over and asked if I wanted it to show to the boys; he had found it in his garden. Of course I did! :) He thought maybe it was a snapping turtle, but I clearly am no turtle expert so looked online. Sure seems to be--and these things grow to be very large.
