Animal of the Month Club: Snapping Turtle

Saturday, June 23, 2018

11:00 a.m.12:30 p.m.

The common snapping turtle is the largest freshwater turtle. Its serpentine neck, massive head, muscular legs, and relatively long tail make it seem even larger. It is estimated that they can live 30 to 40 years in the wild, perhaps even longer.

Join the Urban Park Rangers for the Animal of the Month Club: Snapping Turtle. Learn interesting facts about this pre-historic looking turtle.
