Check out the largest species of turtle in North America; you won't be disappointed.
Coyote Peterson comes across large turtles wherever he goes, but nothing can prepare him for a rare encounter with North America's largest swamp monster, the alligator snapping turtle.
Peterson truly catches a beast of turtle.
Watch the shocking footage.
The alligator snapping turtle is the largest fresh water turtle in the United States. It usually isn't seen as far south as the Everglades. Petetson saw some plants moving and his instincts kicked in.
The film was taken place on a private wildlife preserve. The alligator snapping turtle was once native to the area, and conservationists are working to bring back the humongous turtle.
