Pulled into my driveway just in time to catch this handsome fellow crawling across it. I decided to chauffeur him on his way across the road so no one would hit him. 

A girl came around the bend in the road right in front of my house just as he was rearing up with his mouth open at me. Bet that was quite a sight! She pulled over and jumped out of her car to take some pics before wishing me luck and driving off. I finally managed to get him across the road safely after that. 

Snapping Turtle skull and set of humerus bones.

Both bones have some pathologies but one is especially deformed. The entire middle of the bone is swollen and there is a hole that goes deep into the bone. 

Poor guy was likely shot and the bullet lodged in the bone. It’s not visible in the hole but I imagine the bone surrounded it and it’s probably in the knot towards the back.

Tough old turtle. 

Here’s the finished skull from that big snapping turtle I found dead by my pond last year. Not the biggest snapper skull in my collection but he was still a rather large fellow!

His humerus bones have some massive deformities I’ll have to post pictures of soon. 

Hullo, Handsome

This is the skull from that big snapping turtle that I found dead by my pond last summer. I didn’t remember him being as huge as he is! Poor old guy must have been ancient. 

Jar o’ Snapping Turtle Feets. Every curiosity collection needs a few turtle feet and I have some for sale in my shop right now! They were collected from roadkill turtles so no animals were harvested just for their parts. 
PS No one has correctly guessed what that last skull I posted is yet…
