Snapping Turtle – Aggressive Biter

common

 

There are two kinds of Snapping Turtle: the Common Snapping Turtle and the larger Alligator Snapping Turtle. As its name suggests, the Common Snapping Turtle is more wide-spread and can be found in a large area, from southeastern Canada, to the Rocky Mountains, east as far as Florida and Nova Scotia, and down south as far as Ecuador.

 

Brown Pelican

Currently on the Endangered Species List, the brown pelican is found along the Pacific, Atlantic, and Gulf Coast of the US and Mexico, extending as far south as Venezuela on the Atlantic Coast, and to Chile on the Pacific Coast. Following the nesting season, the brown pelican can also be found northward – in Nova Scotia and British Columbia. The brown pelican's habitat is typically waterfronts, marina, sandy beaches and lagoons in coastal areas.
