January 11, 2019

Location: Viera Wetlands

I am a Soft-shelled Turtle
I'm carnivorous but I don't have teeth.
I can, quite handily, hunt waterfowl and fish,
Using my sharp, pointy beak.

(Make sure you click to enlarge this one - I've take a few pictures of  Soft-shelled turtles over the years and this is the first time I noticed that they don't have teeth!)
