Beats me…

This monster snapper hangs around the dock on occasion, I’ve handled him quite a bit in the last 15-20 years so he is used to my presence. I decided to mount a GoPro to a stick and got up close & personal with this old turtle. I tried getting him to snap at the camera but no luck…this time.

    “Ride of the Valkyries”???
    How do you define “monster”?
    According to that font of all knowledge (Wiki) the common snapping turtle goes up to 75 lb in the wild. (This is probably not the alligator snapping turtle which appears to have a strongly ridged shell.)
    Fish go way beyond this (e.g. catfish, sturgeon up to 2000 lb, bull shark up to around 700 lb.)
    Nice video!

    O/T – Some Cdn. wildlife. Cute baby beaver found on a golf course near Calgary about a week ago. Bath time in his pool.

    I would have chosen music redolent of the aquatic, maybe something by Debussy — like his “Engulfed Cathedral.” He’s a dear old turtle. May he live a long life, — if given half a chance they usually do.
