In a forest in low lying wet ground.


I don't know what classification a turtle falls under. So any help would be appreciated.

Common snapping turtle, Chelydra serpentina. And turtles are reptiles, so this belongs in that category :)

It might be a snapping turtle based on the weird ridges on the rear of the shell?
