Pet Turtles And More reader John shares pictures of his pet turtles, namely:

  • Chompers, an alligator snapping turtle
  • Stimpy, a Ouachita map turtle

Chompers and Stimpy share a beautiful looking pet turtle tank that has various types of feeder fish. One of these days, the alligator snapping turtle – Chompers, will need to be separated from the Ouchita map turtle – Stimpy, for the map turtle’s safety.

  2. I have a 2 month old common snapper hatchling, but alligator snappers are soooo beautiful! I found my snapper leaving the nest and walking the wrong way, into the street. As I approached her I was realllyyy hoping she was an alligator snapper.
