::Just wandering how much are softshells from private breeders? Softshells are my favorite freshwater turtle. Second comes alligator snappers and I would never have a snapper lol. Reach for one of them and you could pull back a nub. I like softshells though I think they are the fastest fresh water turtle they are.

:If you mess with a big enough softshell turtle, you could come back with a nub from them too. They can be very mean just like snappers. They are alot harder to take care of than snappers too and would also require a large tank like snappers...

The one I used to have was a wild caught one it was a hatchling. I never knew they were in northwest ga and northwest Alabamba. I was fishing one day and I happend to look down at the waters edge and there he was. I released him back into the wild after a few days.
