These massive Snapping Turtles are extremely adept at throwing themselves at targets, withdrawing into their shell, and spinning quickly towards the enemy. Those who have been hit wit these attacks say it’s akin to being hit by a carriage. Surprisingly, these turtles are asexual, and are able to fertilize and lay eggs even if no other Snapper is present.
