Designer Model

I never knew that a snapping turtle's plastron was so minimal. I looks more like an after thought than an actual attempt at armor, kind of a designer model. I might get one myself.

It's the thong of turtle plastrons!
(And it only adds to the overall grossicity of this species of turtle...)

That is such an amazing photo that I'm speechless.

I don't find snapping turtles gross at all; I think they are utterly fascinating.

They don't need defense, because they're on offense.
