    My strange addiction: snapping turtles

    Added to the snapping turtle collection today with 3 hatchling alligator snapping turtles:



    I already have an older alligator snapper that I've had since she was the size of a quarter. Plus, I also have two florida snappers that I got when they young, but they're very food aggressive, so they're growing quick.




    Pretty cool!

    Snappers are great for getting rid of refused prey. The more you polish the shell the more they like you.

    Good luck!

    I spent most of spare time playing in creek when I was a kid. I played with a lot of snappers all sizes.

    I learned pretty quick to hold those guys like in the second pic. I was amazed and still am at how far back that neck can stretch back and getcha!
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Alligator snapping turtles aren't as bad as my florida snapping turtles. Those guys want to bite anything and everything, and they have the neck range to do it.
