  1. What a stunning portrait. Really like your style, Dave, already from the thumbnail I can see it's you. Very bright, lots of details, colorful, yet not pushed to far. Nice signature. Posted 5 years ago

The common snapping turtle is a large freshwater turtle of the family Chelydridae. Its natural range extends from southeastern Canada, southwest to the edge of the Rocky Mountains, as far east as Nova Scotia and Florida and as far southwest as northeastern Mexico. This species and the larger alligator snapping turtle are the only two species in this family found in North America.
