    Long Nosed Snapping Turtle?

    I've been catching some turtles at my local lake and I've been catching what looks like snapping turtles but with a long nose, I've never seen one like this before. I've got two in my tank right now, You guys know anything on this?

    They're probably soft shell turtles.

    Luckily Mud Turtles are tiny. I wouldn't bring home anything, especially a Turtle which can potentially get freakin' huge, and possibly have varying land to water ratio, diet, or temperature needs...

    When you said turtle with a long nose I figured you meant the Florida Soft Shell.
