Alligator Snapping Turtle from Cajun Country ( if jaws snap shut on your finger / guaranteed you have lost that finger / akin to metal cutting snips ,the powerful snap shut jaws are amazingly effective / so leave a wide berth to these creatures at the river when on holiday visiting foreign rivers folks !! ✔️
Alligator snapping turtles can live to be 50 to 100 years old. Males average 26 inches in shell length and weigh about 175 pounds, although they have been known to exceed 220 pounds. The much smaller females top out at around 50 pounds.
