Turtlezilla

This has got to be the biggest freshwater turtle that I’ve seen outside of captivity. Spotted him while walking the Nolan trail, he has to be several feet long and probably over a hundred pounds.

 

Caught, and done..

This fella is having a really bad night. Not sure how, but he managed to get 10′ up into the air beneath some floodlights in the backyard, and subsequently into the very edges of a large spiderweb. One strand was enough to do the job..
