"Ontario Nature: Common snapping turtle" Top 5 Page for this destination Province of Ontario Favorite Tip by kris-t
Province of Ontario General: 40 reviews and 87 photos
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.
