Thanks all for the comments..... We have many of these Soft Shelled Turtles here in our Florida fresh water and ditches. They get quite large 24", and the large ones have been known to take down small ducks. They are very agressive if cornered out of the water.

Great shots. Now you need to go find an aligator turtle to freak these people out. ;)

No, this one was photographed in the Viera Wetlands in Brevard County.
