A large common Snapping Turtle. Snapping turtles like most other turtles are sluggish on land, this in combination with the fact that they cannot hide in their shell like most other turtles makes them especially susceptible to predators. For this reason they bite as a method of defence but only on land. In the water a Snapping Turtle will much rather swim away from you if it feels threatened

Yesterday, Anthony set a hoop trap, in hopes of catching a Common Snapping Turtle, Chelydra serpentina, as part of our work with @natgeochannel and their Critter Cam research. Our group included 5 interns from Goodwin College and Quinnipiac University, staff from InterCommunity, Inc.and Community Health Resources, community land owners on Crystal Lake, Connecticut, a talented professional photographer, the ever popular Chris Luginbuhl and theTurtleRoom.com. We received word roughly one hour later that we had caught a snapper and will return tomorrow to attach the device and start research! 😁🐒 #turtles #turtle #snappingturtle #natgeo

One last shot, just for good measure. I bet he don't eat any more fish out of my pond! #snappingturtle vs. #Remington

First time ever catching a snapping turtle 🐒 #girlswhofish #snapper #snappingturtle #schukbilly #bridgeportpa #schuylkillriver

Help I stopped the car and wanted to pick this guy up but he was snapping like crazy! I nudged him to the side of the road! What's the safest way to pick up a snapping turtle? #turtlerescue #snappingturtle #scaredycat #helpthemout #turtlemovingtips #muskokaliving

It appears that these Snapping Turtle eggs were eaten along Papermill Trail.

This little snapper tried his darnedest to escape the wrath of the researcher. Unfortunately for him my education prepared me for moments in which I'd lose my shit over cute baby animals but remain professionally competent 😍🐒 #snappingturtle #reptile #research #Ontario

That's one big turtle! #snappingturtle

This lady is on her journey to lay her eggs. I love these pre-historic turtles, just look at that dinosaur tail, a link to our past. #snappingturtle #naturesbeauty

Blueberries! Snapping turtles, snakes, and mushrooms, too!

We didn't see any big wildlife on this trip but we had all of the blueberries we could wish for to make up for it! We were greeted at the launch by a big ol' snapper and a school of baby catfish. We found a garter snake sunning itself. Some herons and sand hill cranes squawked and flew overhead. I found a lovely mushroom to photograph (I do love fungus!). The bullfrogs kept a few of us up. And there was a loon reunion that we had front row seats to! Not too shabby! Have your foraged or found any neat flora or fauna recently?
