Snapping turtle


Snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina)

Defensive loners

The snappy toad knows how to defend itself, with a bite it can bite bones, with its claws it defends itself as well as with a stinking secretion. As a Lauerjäger she waits for her prey buried in the mud and then snaps at lightning speed.
