Snapping turtle makes good soup... good burgers too. Just make sure you grab them by the tail, grabbing the other end is a bad idea.:p

back in Pa we used to shoot snappers with the 22's on this guys pond, and some where bigger than the bottom of a 55 gallon drum, roughly 30-50lb snappers

I heard it is good and I was told that I had it when I was a kid. But I don't think I could find it in me to try it. They just look gross :p

You should try cleaning one... when you split open the shell and have it laying there, it almost looks human, like a baby laying on it's back... you feel kinda guilty. But the lake where I grew up had quite a few big bruisers and they had to be taken out.
