The turtle that bites a baby crocodile!

If you see a newspaper story about how a baby crocodile cried because a small turtle bit it, will you believe it?

Probably not but it is true. There is this turtle that is known as snapping turtles. These turtles react swiftly when trespassed. In fact, it doesn't have teeth but a mean beak at the end of its nose.

Other peculiarities of snap turtle:

* It can't withdraw its head into its shell because it has scales on its head.

* Even its legs are exposed because of its rather small shell.

* Capable of biting a man's hand too with its mean beak.

*Police use snap turtles to find dead bodies in water because snap turtles feed on dead fish and other dead creatures.
