Arrivals of Alligator snapping turtles

Just few days ago, some new Alligator snapping turtles arrived at Biotropica.
You can find them at the bottom of the waterfall just facing the marmosets’ island.

Alligator snapping turtles are the heaviest river turtles of the USA !

They have a whorm-shapped appendage on the tips of their tongue in order to lure fish. Attracted by the movement looking like a worm’s movement, fish will try to eat it but will be eat by the turtle instead.
