How do you tell a female snapping turtle from a male?
The difference between a female snapping turtle and a male
snapping turtle is the difference in their tales. Each snapping
turtle has a small cirlce looking shape on theie tale. If it is a
female snapping turtle, it's circle will be closer to the shell (or
the butt) an if it is a male snapping turtle, the circle will not
neccesarily be at the end of the tail, but it is certainly not near
the shell (or butt). With most snapping turtles, it should be
obvious, but with some, it is hard to tell, especially if their
newborns (a week old or younger).
