There is a big ole turtle swimming around in my pool! I tried to scoop him out because it's superchlorinated waiting for Hanna and/or Ike rains...I don't think it's too good for him...but he's having NONE of that! He has a long pointy nose...his shell is oval and smooth. I don't think he's a snapping turtle (at least, not an alligator turtle) but I don't want to get too close without knowing for sure. So I'm off to do an internet search. But I wanted to tell YOU first! ETA: It's a Florida Soft Shell Turtle. They can bite according to this: http://www.lakejacksonturtles.org/softshell.pdf I hope it's okay to post this link.
