The common snapping turtle ( (Chelydra serpentina) is a large freshwater turtle of the family Cheydridae. It is noted for its combative disposition when out of the water with its powerful beak-like jaws, and highly mobile head and neck. The turtle's shell is covered by scales, called scutes. Scutes are made up of keratin, the same substance that human's nails are made of. As a turtle grows, its scutes will often fall off. The shell of the snapping turtle is used in Native American crafts including making dream catchers, jewelry and art. They are also collected.
