I spent the morning on the Scajaquada Creek taking pictures that may become part of a new project. I spotted a snapping turtle swimming near the surface of the water. The turtle's shell was probably about a foot long. Not too big by snapper size standards, but I think I'm always measuring against the picture of an Alligator Snapper below.
This is from the book Florida's Fabulous Reptiles and Amphibians. I've been fascinated with this image for years.
