Alligator Snapping Turtle video
This is one of my Alligator Snapping Turtles. I was filming him and doing some pictures over the weekend and he decided he didnt want to cooperate anymore. Spent more time running from him than actually getting the pictures I wanted. This one is about 10 years old. I got him when he was about silver dollar sized. Now he is about the size of a basketball. I feed him insects, koi food, left over bait fish from fishing, worms, some plants, crawfish and anything else he'll eat.

Can't you make a nice gumbo out of those things?
Those things are awesome.
Nice pet dude, good luck keeping your fingers.
Whoa. Looks like a little dinosaur.
Oh snap! (Sorry. I was cleaning that really bad joke and it went off.)
If you ever need to move it around, just use an old piece of rope. I used to do it all the time growing up in the woods. I would just dangle the rope in front of them and they would lock on. Then I would just carry them into the trees a bit and cut the rope off an inch or two from their head. Eventually they would let go and I would still have most of my rope.
That thing is bizarre. Looks like something from fifty million years ago. Please keep your fingers away from the sharp end.
