Here's another softshell turtle, up close and personal; they tend to avoid us in the wild but here they've grown accustomed to us bi-pedal critters; they're much more concerned about the alligators in the lake.

Trionyx ferox almost never leaves the water; in fact rarely will it stick its entire head out of the water. This photo shows what folks generally see - the nostrils and eyes.
