Bent Snapper

Medium-sized snapping turtle.
By medium-sized, I mean the shell here is bigger than your average dinner plate.

About a month ago, I ran into this same turtle in the water.
This carapace (top shell) is unique, and rather unusual. I’ve never seen the spines on the far edge pointing upwards on other specimens.
