Snapping Turtle

Meet our Common Snapping Turtle at Green Cay.  This guy lives in our laboratory and we use him for education programs.  Actually he was a very kind and gentle turtle until last year and then once we started feeding him pinkie mice, he became a much more aggressive turtle.  Now we are just waiting to take him to the big tank so that the general public can see him on a daily basis.  I'll feel much better about keeping him inside once he has moved to the other tank.  If only he would play nice with the other turtles!
