Come Closer by FriendFrog Come Closer by FriendFrog
Alligator snapping turtle. He wants to eat you. Can weigh between 155 and 175 pounds. There is an unverified report of a 403-pound (183 kg) Alligator Snapping Turtle found in Kansas in 1937. (Thanks, Wikipedia!)

Shot through glass. Inside. On a cloudy day. Without a tripod. :crying:

100mm, f/2.8
1/13 sec., ISO 400

This kinds of turtles realy scary me. In my opinion it is some kind of mistake to give such beak to turtle. (Have nothing against all the others turtles).

Trust me, this turtle is terrifying. I'm pretty sure he lies in wait for people and tries to ambush them. Without glass to block him, there would be many casualties.

Wow, one of my favourites! Really nice capture. Wouldn't want to get caught between those jaws though!
