May 27, 2013: Snapping Turtle

Common Snapping Turtle. 5/28/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)

This Common Snapping Turtle was found along the main lakes trail, between the bridge spur and the mini-shelter along the west sided of the north lake. Snappers will travel overland to reach new habitat or to lay eggs. They are omnivores (vegetation & animal matter) and are able to hunt down anything they can get into their mouth.
