Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina)

This is one of the largest freshwater turtle in Canada. This turtle can live up to 40 years.
The top surface of the tail has a series of large, triangular plates, giving the snapping turtle an appearance like some of the great dinosaurs.
They have long necks, powerful jaws and can give profound bites.

Marsh Wren (Cistothorus palustris)

During the mating season, the male builds 5 to 6 unfinished nests constituted of grasses, cattails, and sedges woven together with an entrance at the side. The female selects one nest and adds a lining to it
or simply built another one.
