I wasn't a big fan either but my hubby talked me into this one and the more I watch him the cuter he becomes. He is a smooth soft shell and he has huge webbed feet. They look totally different when compared to my sliders. His neck is so long and it is wet cool to watch when he stretches all the way out.

They are very cool I will post more pics soon. He is lots of fun to watch and it's cool when he hides in the sand.

some get much much bigger than snappers, luckily our native species dont get that big. I've seen some massive florida softshells, and giant eastern spiny, but nothing like this:
