An older photo showing a giant alligator snapping turtle, that is bigger than the torso of the man holding it, is circulating on the Internet.
The photo was originally posted back in May 2016 by Rebecca Bedell Boaze with the caption, "Look what a friend caught on Caddo in Uncertain, TX this morning."
Alligator snapping turtles are a protected species in Texas and can live from 50 to 100 years old despite reaching maturity around age 12.
They are the largest freshwater turtle in North America and spend most of their lives in the water.
Caddo Lake in Texas is known for alligator snapping turtles. However, this beast really takes the cake!
