Snappers

These turtles don't seem to have evolved much and look more like a holdover from prehistoric times.

Wow, you are right about looking prehistoric. Great variety of angles and perspectives. The one where he's looking dead-on at the lens is my fave.

Lisa Gordon said...

They really do look prehistoric.
You got some really great shots of this big fella, Daniel!

Such good photos! I haven't seen a snapper for years. When I was a kid, "the boys" would get them to latch onto a stick and then chase us with them!
