    [Boston accent] That’s a big snappah [\Boston accent]

    Dang. That’s a big turtle - 124 lbs. I’ve probably only seen one half that size. He was rescued out of a pond.

        Why in the name of all things reasonable would you rescue that?!

          Endangered species, and they are a highly regarded animal In MS. They do a great job of keeping rotting flesh out of waterways.

          They didn’t mention age but I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that he’s as old as me at 47 years.

            That's a big turtle. I wonder what the over/under on fingers and toes he has removed is. I'm gonna say three.
            Whenever there is doubt, there is no doubt.

              And, we need less pics of that chick in front and more of the one in the back to the left.

                Is rotting flesh in waterways a big problem down there??

                  wow? I guess they are protected down there? They are doing DNA testing to determine where to release it into the wild again which seem like a huge waste of resources.

                  Montana consider snapping turtles to be invasive species.

                    Sure, there are a multitude of fishes, birds and mammals that end up dead in the water. The turtles are the cleaners.

                      They may be invasive there. They are native in MS.

                        I'd be standing with her hiding behind the water tank. Fuck those things

                          Grew up with a large conservation pond behind our house. They'd come lay eggs in our yard. Cool to watch. We'd have to scoot them out of the road with a shovel almost daily.

                            I've heard they can clean a protes...um deceased person to nothing in a very short time.
