Hi my cousin found this turtle in his dog's mouth and gave it to me, he claims its a gator snapper. I think its just a common. We live in Greencastle Indiana. Its shell is about 5inches long. Its eating goldfish and lean meat. It does not bite at all. I can pick it up hold it, it does not try to run from me. I haven't provoked it to bite but I have put my finger near its mouth. Its the coolest most laid back turtle Ive ever seen. But I'm not sure what it is any help? I have worked with herps before and am currently raising crested geckos.
