Camera Critters | Project 366 Blog Photo Challenge
Theres a lot of turtles in Aquarium Virginia, but what really caught my attention was this cool Florida Soft Shell Turtle. I thought its pretty unique, sitting pretty still on the rocks, and letting people take his photos. He was different from any other turtles there, because of his soft flat shell and funny nose. But I think he is cute. hehe..
Anyhow, according to Mr Wiki, this turtle is one of the fastest turtle to move on land and water. They can live up to 30 years in captivity. They are pretty much carnivorous. They eat fish, frogs, and other amphibians, insects, duck hatchlings and crustaceans. They are usually shy to humans, if they feel threatened they will bite with their strong jaws. Pretty cool animal huh? I wish theres one living by our pond and creek.
