What exactly happened to this snapping turtle and his shell will likely remain a mystery. But one thing's for sure: He's been in the right hands.
Since he came to WRC, he's gotten the care and warmth he needed to survive the winter. Now, his rescuers are making sure he's good and ready to be wild and free again.
