Alligator Snappers in Texas
Recently on a fishing trip to Lake O the Pines in east Texas, Shirley Adams and
her husband Ricky, a avid outdoorsman were checking ther trot lines and spotted something huge on it! They made there
way to it and Shirley took these amazing photos of a alligator snapping turtle trapped on thier line. They estimated
the turtle to be about 100 lbs. Shirley got te pictures and Rickey released the reptile back to its home in Texas.
Great job guys!
