Pirate Turtle by shadowfire-x Pirate Turtle by shadowfire-x
A common snapping turtle I found at the conservation pond. He was missing an eye, and was very quick to get defensive. He seemed pretty fat and healthy, though.. X3 I want to imagine him with an eyepatch, going "aaarrrrr!"

ALL snapping turtles are very defensive. I'm not sure what took his eye out, though. There are a number of other snappers in that pond, and they're known to be territorial at times. It's possible that it even happened when the guy was young, and something tried to eat him. It looked like a very old, healed-over injury =p

My grandpa's pond (now more of a swamp) has quite a few of them, too.. Grandpas' ponds are the best.

He is such a beat up, scarred looking turtle... But that sure gives him a lot of personality! Great picture, as always.

I always thought it was funny how snapping turtles are an animal that look happy when they're really pissed.. XD
