Introducing “Snappy” at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary

In the fresh water tank, visitors have a chance to meet “Snappy,”  a young juvenile snapping turtle with a Hollywood A-List attitude.  Assuming ownership of the tank, Snappy is always ready to greet sanctuary visitors with his handsome smile and to illustrate “what lies beneath” all those beautiful lily pads in peaceful, pristine ponds.  Isn’t Snappy cute?
