Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina) Photo © Jim Harding Ponds, marshes, lakes, streams, slow rivers and other water habitats. Fairly pollution tolerant. Snappers bask less than other species. They eat almost any small animal they can catch (insects, crayfish, tadpoles, etc.), as well as carrion and aquatic plants. Dangerous if molested on land, less likely to bite under water. Common statewide, but locally depleted due to over-harvest.
