Nice work Ms. Mousie!

I have yet to even set a trap this summer, but I plan to remedy that quite soon. That is a whopper, did you put it on a scale?

People forget how much plant matter turtles that size also eat.
Ask Newt.
Do they eat frogs and ducks ?
Sure, and fish. But they also eat a tremendous amount of plant matter too.

Turtles that size, at least here, would be full of toxins, especially RIVER turtles.
They wouldn't be fit to eat and I've argued that point for a very long time.
Turtles that large are very old and are worth FAR MORE alive than dead.

Ask a turtle farmer, which is where a large portion of snappers are sold to.

I bet that thing has human fingers in it. I don't think I could help but play chicken with it either.....like a kid finding a hornets nest and a pule of rocks.......like y'all never did it.
