I don't know, but I'm subscribing to find out. Is it weird that I think it's cute? :oops:

Yes very nice shots. Soft shells are interesting because they can get large (some up to 1.5 ft) and there necks are very long. But they can be just as dangerous as a snapping turtle. Sharp and powerful jaws. the only really safe place to grab them is at the base of the tail. Thank you for posting
