I am a reptile freak, snakes, turtles, lizards, frogs, alligator whatever I love em all. Today on my way home from work a Common snapper was crossing the road almost got hit by a car. I stopped and picked him up. Im guessing hes 25+ pounds once I get a picture ill post it up. What makes him special is, I put him in a 50+ gallon tupperware container with a lid. I DUCT TAPED the lid 3 times. Went to bed, woke up a few hours later and decided to check on him. He broke the lid off and got into our koi pond. I dont believe he ate any of our fish before I got him out. The walls of this container are about 18 inches high, I dont know how he could have ever reach up, and created enough force to get the tape loose, the lid off and climb out. And on top of that, the container was sitting straight up, I would have thought that when he reached the top, the contained would have turned over.
