The heavy weights become summoned by the sounds of thunder, the thuds of hail, and the disasters of nature. This Thundersaur gravitated towards the need for radiation after the recent hail storm refrigerated the country air. This snapping turtle probably weighed around 30-40 lbs. with a shell approximately 16-17 inches long.

Can anyone believe that some people actually esteem snapping turtles as a delicacy? They are carnivores and the nutritional value of carnivore meat declines as trophic levels are ascended. Then again the people who like eating snapping turtles are the same kind of people who grill road killed varmints on their barbie in front of their beaten down trailer.

Gorgeous photo, I love the lighting and the DOF. One of the best closeups of a turtle I have ever seen.
