On this episode of Dragon Tails, Coyote takes a major bite from a huge Alligator Snapping Turtle!
Yes, this is absolutely a crazy thing to do and we can’t stress enough that this should NOT be attempted by anyone, EVER. Being bitten by a turtle of this size, or any turtle for that matter, is extremely dangerous.
The only reason Coyote decided to go through with this challenge was due to popular demand and to hopefully reach a wider audience therefore promoting a greater awareness and understanding of this incredible species in hopes that more people will join the conservation effort. To Coyote, taking one chomp is totally worth it if it helps save more turtles.
So here it is ladies and gentleman…the Ultimate Alligator Snapping Turtle Bite!
*The alligator snapping turtle featured in this video was not harmed in any way and was immediately released back into its natural environment.
Dragon Tails explores the incredible world of snapping turtles and all of the folklore and myth that surrounds one of the planet’s most ancient and misunderstood creatures.
