Brownfield, ME (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I found this small snapper making his way across the driveway from our pond to the brook..his much, much larger Mom or Pop was already into the high grasses..even these small ones can do serious damage to your fingers or toes..very aggressive as you can see when I waved a small stick in front of him!

Thanks for sharing Suzi! First time I've seen a photo of a male snapper I think. Any guesses on how I can tell? Usually it's the females that people see when they are going to, or from laying their eggs in the Spring.

llpj04, You named the dinosaur that snappers remind me of. Thank you, I was trying to remember that ancient creature's name.

Crazy when they try to look bigger. The turtle raises up as high as it can & really looks like a steggosaurus.

just looking at those claws and it's prehistoric features is scary enough..the hissing and mouth wide open just adds to the feeling..the very large ones are definitely dangerous..I too find them fascinating though..thanks for your comment :)

I love snapping turtles. They look ancient to me. I once found a snapper trying to cross a road. I was afraid that someone would hit it with a car, so I decided to pull over and move it. I picked it up by the sides of the shell, and got the most evil hiss and facial expression imaginable. I am glad I moved it though.

About suzi46

suzi46

Living in the mountains of Western Maine on a 15 acre 'gentleman's farm', in a hand hewn log home, has been a wonderful experience these past 6 1/2 years. The photo ops are virtually unlimited what with the surrounding working farms, dozens of lakes, ponds, and brooks, and thousands of acres of forest. Not to mention our own pond and brooks as well as extensive flower gardens, fruit bushes, vines, and trees. The views of Mt Washington and the Presidentials of NH only add to the drama! Not a bad place to be retired..and I am so glad I can share all of this with the wonderful folks on this great site..it has been a wonderful journey and learning experience thus far..and it's only getting better!
