Favorite thing: The natural range of this large freshwater turtle extends from southeastern Canada, southwest to the Rocky Mountains as far east as Nova Scotia and Florida.

Fondest memory: Unlike other turtles, they are too large to hide in their own shells when confronted, therefore snapping is their defense mechanism.

Caution! - The turtle can amputate a finger with its powerful jaws and its neck is very flexible. Lifting this turtle with the hands is extremely dangerous.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
