Spiny Softshell Turtle No. 1 STOCK by slephoto Spiny Softshell Turtle No. 1 STOCK by slephoto
A Spiny Softshell Turtle (specifically an Apalone spinifera spinifera) at the Salisbury, MD zoo. This's a bit fuzzy from shooting thru the glass.

THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT, but I would be GRATEFUL if you would let me know about any work you create with my stock. I'd just like to see how it's been used. :)

I actually went fishing one time and I caught this, me and my dad didn't know what the heck it was but it kind scared us. lol we took the hook out of its mouth and put it back in. Good to know what it is now though.
