Biology of the Despised: Snapping Turtles

Presented by The Amphibian Foundation

The Amphibian Foundation seeks to elevate awareness of the global amphibian declines. Here in Atlanta, AF also works to address some of the urban pressures impacting reptiles as well. This year, we're dispelling myths about one strong jawed, misunderstood critter: Snapping Turtles. AF has been working with the community for many years to help people discern facts from fiction when it comes to our local wildlife. Come explore these awe-inspiring animals, and let’s see how much of that fear is actually fascination.
