I actually had a snapper about that size that escaped while in the yard. He escaped in late April of 2002 and we didn't find him until late June of that year. We were having a concrete patio put in and the workers who were digging ended up finding the turtle. One of his rear legs was cut off with the shovel. He survived and is about 5 inches now. It's cool to think that he would have survived that long out of the water and in temperatures that dropped into the 40s. What a survivor. Anyway, sorry for the long story. This turtle has escaped inside the house a few times and we always found him within 10 feet of his tub. When I get another digi-cam, I'll post some pictures of the little champ.

:Hey,
: I have a problem. I put my little 2in common snaper in his feeding bin and he some how managed to get out. We limited it down top a single room but there is soooo much crap in that room it's impossible to look for him. He have looked for about an hour now and no luck. the room is about 20ft by 10ft. I have no idea what to do. I mean where to I start. Is there a way to lure him out. How long can he last with no water or food? Thanks for any help at all...
