Snapping Turtle Wildlife Footage

A sampling of snapping footage collected primarily in South Dakota.  Individual clips can be found at, including more HD and 4k footage (contact us if you need help). 

Most of the footage is of the common snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina); however the last few clips are of the alligator snapping turtle (Macrochelys temminckii).  Includes footage of snapping turtles swimming, including underwater footage, of snapping turtles on land, and of snapping turtles eating.  The underwater shots were taken with a GoPro.
