Waterborne American Atrosoties

While we traveled the breadth of the Eastern States of the USA we were surprised to find a wide range of creatures – some of which we were fortunate enough to capture through the combined skills of the group and Pete’s expensive camera.

The rarest and scariest of our finds was the snapping turtle – we captured a particularly malodorous specimen and made it angry enough to snap a small twig clean in two:

    Apparently this snapping turtle is quite a rare ‘Alligator Snapping Turtle’.
