I may have caught a world record snapper

Recommended Posts

(Chelydra serpentina osceola) world record?

I think I have caught the world record of this variety. I am posotive about the variety

Any help would be appreciated .This is different than the Common or the Alligator snappers its a subspecies like an Osceola Turkey is different than an Eastern Turkey. This is different than the others and the biggest Florida Snapper anyone I know has seen

Thanks I will have to call them .

Jake P. I saw that record thats for a common snapping turtle its a different species than the Fl snapping turtle. It swallowed a big stainless hook meant for a gator so I had to put the turtle down .  :( I hated catching him actually . I wish I could have saved him but the hook was deep. It was a male turtle so maybe it has passed his genes around the area . No telling how old one like that is

That sucks you had to put him down but I am sure an old, studly fellow like that has passed his genes on a time or two.
