When I moved to Florida a year and a half ago, I began seeing these strange-looking turtles. I found out they are Florida Softshell Turtles. I was amazed with their snorkel-like noses and shells that looked like they were made of wet leather. They are pretty common at the places I visit, and they're always a joy to watch. On two occasions, I've seen broken shells from these turtles that had been obviously caught and eaten by predators, though I don't know for sure what predator caught them. These turtles grow very large, and they can bite, so whatever caught them must have been pretty substantial--I'm guessing they were alligators. At any rate, here's a couple photos of the Florida Softshell Turtle.
