hes defensive cause some idiot probably took his eye out.
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
Yeah he looks cool! I love snapper turtles
I can see this making a great lolturtle
ha, snappers are kinda charming in their own way. i catch them all the time in my grandpa's pond
My grandpa's pond (now more of a swamp) has quite a few of them, too.. Grandpas' ponds are the best.
Aww he's so cute! Looks so beat up though! Poor lil guy! What conservation did you go to?
Captain Jack turtle!,love it! .
wiiii.... is that cute. very cool picture.
lmao this is hilarious! what a scary mouth!
He is such a beat up, scarred looking turtle... But that sure gives him a lot of personality! Great picture, as always.
Aww.. thank you.. X3 There was actually another snapper about the same size, dead on the other side of the pond... I located it by smell.. =X
He looks cheerful!
I always thought it was funny how snapping turtles are an animal that look happy when they're really pissed.. XD
XD He's totally going "YEAAAR" there. Just be sure he doesn't snap your fingers off next time you see him!
That's an awesome turtle.
