bestiary: alligator snapping turtle

whew, been pretty busy with a couple of jobs and an illustration i'm chipping away at. yes it's 30 rock related. anyway, here's another one for the bestiary. these guys are also indiginous to the u.s. but have found their way to asia. they honestly look a little dinosaur...ic....to me and apparently i'm not the only one to think so. they're carnivorous but they scavenge, mainly on fish from what i've read. no natural predators for these snappers. i didn't know they can live to more than one hundred years! apparently they don't bite. much. they can amputate your digits! macrochelys temminckii in moleskine.
