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.


  1. Awesomeness, this snapper has greatness to it's presence displayed in these wonderful images shared~
