In Reply to: Huge Common Snapper posted by anuraanman on January 24, 2003 at 17:39:43:
:Last April I found this beast behind my house. It had a 22 inch shell (a record i think) and was on top of a smaller snapper with a 12 inch shell. I think they breed under water so does anybody know what they were doing on top of each other on land?? Mybe a territory dispute, in that case it seems pretty one sided given the weight ratio.
Hello, my nameis Mark Rouw and I am the curator of reptiles at the Science Center of Iowa. I have been interested in huge snapping turtles for many years. I would like to find out more about the 22 inch snapper you found. I don't have a computer at home so I am going through a co-worker at The Science Center. Could you please call me at the Science Center at 515-274-4138 extension 245.
