Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
Now that you mention it yeah...that's clearly not an American Crocodile. The snout is WAY too short. I must have been drinking when I wrote that... Anthony, I think you should split this into three spottings.
John are you sure the crocodilian is an American crocodile? It looks more like the Paleosuchus I've seen.
Hi Anthony, the first turtle in your series of 3 photographs above is definitely a Blanding's turtle, but the 3rd is a "soft-shelled" turtle!
Alice is correct. The first looks like a Blanding's hybird, the second is an American Crocodile, and the third is a softshell turtle. Since they are in a zoo, it is hard for me to determine the softshell at this point.
You have three different spottings and each one needs it's own page. Please seperate them so everyone will see them. You put more than one picture on a page only if it is the same subject.
