The alligator snapping turtle looks like a common snapping turtle that focused on strength and defence in an RPG.

It was so satisfying to find these in RDR2. Unfortunately they don't act any differently than normal turtle in the game.

Tulsa Parker says:

Yo we have a 60 pound alligator snappen turtle in our pond

Alexander Laycock says:

They be making the pog face

Mack D'nife says:

Apparently, most commenting here wasnt listening.
Im VERY acquainted with the common snapper.Where I live here in northern Ohio,they are everywhere. And will F you up! In a heart beat.
And,I spent quite a bit of time in the bayou down south.And I can tell you,Id rather deal with the Alligator Snapper then our Common Snapper in Ohio. So dont count the little fellow out.Size doesnt matter in this case.

Mack D'nife says:

You're not very smart bud.I dont care how professional you think you are,those common snappers done csre eithrr and WILL "F" you up.
They can reach back over their shell to nail you,and WILL do it in a heartbeat.
Holding one as carelessly as you did was foolhardy at the least.
But then again,you are the nut that intentionally let one bite you just to try a couple methods to get it to release you.
Personally,I dont think your elevator goes all the way to the top.We have the common snapper all over the place where I live in Ohio,and people are SUPER cautious when crossing creeks and shallow rivers.

cile feral says:

Kind of reminds you of bowser

Shadow daffy says:

The turtles look like that are always excited. 😂
