TURTLE RESCUE TEAM🙌 This big Soft Shell turtle 🐢 was the "monster" in the bushes spooking the horses !
Wooh #Puppies swipe left ☚ to see the pic of the #turtle 🐢 we saw! I #google #pointynoseturtle and found The #Florida #softshellturtle ( #Apalone #ferox) is a species of #softshell turtle native to the Southeastern United States. A ferox is almost entirely aquatic, only emerging from the water to bask or to lay eggs. It prefers the still waters of ponds, streams, lakes, and swamps. Like all softshells, it is very fast-moving in water and on land. This species is carnivorous, consuming fish, insects, crustaceans, and molluscs. It may also scavenge. Alligators have been known to prey on the adults of A. ferox. Raptors may take juveniles. Nest predators include the fish crow, foxes, raccoons, and skunks.

It took everything in me not to boop that snoot! Rescued this ungrateful, yet adorable softshell turtle from a potentially unpleasant fate. This was number 3 for the week, and it's only Tuesday! They've got places to be, yo! Watch the roads! #SoftshellTurtle #Turtle #Herper #Herpetology #Reptile #WildFlorida #Conservation #FloridaWildlife #NatureFl #BooptheSnoot #Snoot #Wildlife #WomenInStem

Pleasant Hill eighth-graders Erin Naples, left, and Makayla Sanders react to the slippery surface of a #softshellturtle as middle and high school students from across the area take part in the #CleanWaterCelebration on April 24, 2017 at the #PeoriaCivicCenter. The program is a joint effort between the #SunFoundation and the #RiversProject.

04.24.17 (2 photos) I was driving back home tonight when I saw this Florida Softshell Turtle coming down our street. We put him in our wagon and took him back to the Mangroves across from our house. He seemed pretty happy to be back home. He was a good sized Softshell...24" x 16" and probably weighed 20-25lbs. iPhone SE image processed with Snapseed. #softshellturtle #turtlesofinstagram #martincountyflorida #martincounty #treasurecoast #hobesound #coastalliving #floridasoftshellturtle
Florida lake living. Why would I ever think about leaving? This soft shell turtle was just chilling (baking) and George was either really happy or really pissed. Hard to tell. #florida, #lakehowell, #wildlife, #turtle, #softshellturtle, #iphone, #casselberry, #lakeliving, #clashofthetitans.

Saw this #turtle just chilling along the bank. Right after I took this a #softshellturtle came up and bit its tail lol. #bassfishing #nature
Came across this large female Florida Softshell Turtle (Apalone ferox) who was looking for a viable nesting site; you can see her testing the soil about 30 seconds into the clip, hopefully she finds a safe area for her eggs. ❤🐢 [[<3]] #turtle #turtles #turtlesofinstagram #florida #floridasoftshellturtle #softshellturtle #reptile #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram #animal #animalsofinstagram #nesting #Apaloneferox #shell #ShellLife #nature #everglades #floridaeverglades #wild #planet #earth #life #🐢
Make sure to check out my YouTube channel in a few days to get everything you wanted to know about this Eastern Spiny Soft Shell Turtle! #turtle #softshellturtle #coyotepeterson @coyotepeterson I think I may have found a bigger one. 😄. @marklaivins what do you think?
Naturalist Nichole Houze captured this video of Spiny the soft shell turtle catching a few zzzz's. We wonder: What do turtles dream about when they're asleep? Let us know what you think! #turtle #reptile #softshellturtle #nature #naturalist #naturalohio #wildlife #wildohio #medinacountyparks

These unfortunate looking mamas are on the move looking for places to nest so watch out for them crossing roadways. Was sad to see three dead on Tamiami tonight 😔🐢 #floridasoftshell #floridasoftshellturtle #softshellturtle #turtle #freshwater #nature #wildlife #southflorida #everglades #evergladesnationalpark #florida
Almost ran him over, but with quick reflexes I was able to save him and relocate to a near by pond. 😆🐢 #softshellturtle #uglyfellow
Asiatic softshell turtle or black-rayed softshell turtle (Amyda cartilaginea) is a species of softshell turtle in the Trionychidae family. found in Bangladesh (Bandarban region), Brunei, Cambodia, northeastern India, Indonesia (Java, Kalimantan), Laos, Malaysia(Sabah, Sarawak), Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. grows from 27.6 to 31.5 inches in length. can be found in tropical regions, freshwater habitats, rainforest terrestrial biomes, in the aquatic biomes of lakes, ponds, canals and lowland streams. will feed off of plants and animals when given the chance. It has the ability to stay under water for long periods of time because of the gill like structure it possesses. they are exploited for trade and harvested for food. With business developing that rely on the exploitation of Amyda cartilaginea, the population of this species has declined. There is more worry now than ever about the danger of the Asiatic soft-shell's exploitation. In fact, it is hard to say exactly how much longer this species will be around. #asiaticsoftshellturtle #softshellturtle #reptiles #animals #wildlife #conservation #endangeredspecies #pets #india #java #maylasia

@nakaweproject - Image courtesy of Nakawe Project Founder and Executive Director, Regi Domingo @regisunday The Florida softshell turtle (Apalone ferox) is a large freshwater turtle with a relatively flat, leathery shell and a distinctive tubular snout. Its eyes are positioned towards the front of the head, giving it almost binocular vision and a distinctly more intelligent look than other turtles. Florida softshell turtles play a role in the aquatic ecosystem both as predators and as scavengers, and in turn provide food (as eggs and post-hatching turtles) for other predators. Young Apalone ferox are prone to bacterial and fungal skin problems; these problems occur in both wild and captive animals and populations. Little is known about parasites in Apalone ferox; they can harbor leeches, and Foster et al. (1998) found eight helminth species in Florida softshell turtle obtained from a commercial process. Florida softshell turtles are harvested in large numbers for the food trade, both for domestic consumption and, increasingly, to supply Asian markets. Between July 1990 and July 1991, 3600 softshell turtles were purchased for meat in south Florida. Today there are breeding centers in southern Florida to raise turtles for Chinese markets (Bonin et al., 2006), but wild turtles are often taken to resupply breeding farms. Apalone ferox is the most heavily harvested turtle species in Florida. Florida softshell turtles remain common in many parts of their range, but populations are locally threatened due to habitat destruction and heavy harvesting. Despite large numbers removed from the wild in some places, Florida softshell turtles remain common in refuge areas and other areas less subject to harvest; their dispersal abilities may allow them to repopulate over-harvested or isolated habitats. Softshell turtles (Apalone) are sensitive to rotenone, a poison often used to collect and survey fish for population studies. Florida softshell turtles are subject to harvest regulations in states where they occur, but are not yet considered to be endangered or threatened on any Federal or State list. #Florida #Everglades #softshellturtle #LetLive #WeAreAllConnected
