Do snapping turtles really snap?

I think snapping turtles can pretty much do whatever they want. :nod head:

I put one in a bathtub, I know it wanted out and I know if it could have flown it would have... it didn't, so they can't do anything they wanted to do..

Yes, they definitely do.

 

And I can attest to some non-snapping turtles that snap too, as I got bit by a painted turtle as a child.  It took three hard shakes to get it off of my finger, and I ran home screaming bloody murder missing a small piece.  Those things beaks are *sharp*.

Snapping turtles snap and then they clamp.  It isn't the snapping part you have to worry about.  It's the clamping part.

yep, this right here ^^^

 

I have them around my lake. I've seen one that was big enough to take your hand off at the wrist
