Snapping Turtle

Snapping Turtle

Typical Damage/Nuisance Caused:

Snapping Turtles can destroy a small pond's fish population, especially if it is stocked with ornamental fish like carp, koi, or catfish. Occasionally they will eat baby ducks or geese out of a pond.

Quick Facts:

Snappers have jagged edges on the perimeter of their shell and on their tails, adding to their very prehistoric look.
