I have seen aggresion in captive common snappers, as my 7 year old turtle has a reputation of killing cagemates. He is now caged alone, but he was always overly aggresive since he was a hatchling. This turtle started off living with two other common snappers, and it got along fine with them...it was after i introduced a hatchling RE slider, did the aggresion start. In other words the red-eared was dead in a week. He ended up killing one of the other snappers, and a few other animals..looking back i should've separated the turtle sooner, but its a lesson learned. Now...In wild Chelydra, which i have been studying for 10+ years, I have seen them basking side by side with eastern painted turtles. I have not witnessed predation on other turtles in the wild, and im not sure if anyone has..if anyone knows of this or has read it, please refer it to me. As far as captives go, each snapper is an individual...You take a chance if you put them with other turtles.
