Alligator Snapping Turtle, Macroclemys temminckii
Alligator Snapping Turtles are huge. They are the largest freshwater turtle. They can weigh over 250 pounds. They have a unique ability to lure fish into their mouths. They have a fleshy appendage on the end of their tongues that can appear like something to eat, to small fish. When the fish swims close enough to check it out, the turtle snaps it's mouth close on the fish.
