A Visitor In Our Creek

Yesterday was such a beautiful day that we decided to have our Sunday Dinner on the deck. 
 While we were out there, my son-in-law Shane, spots something moving in the creek below.

It was this monster....
A huge snapping turtle.
It has to be the largest turtle I have ever seen around here.
I wonder how long they live? 
He seemed so old.
He was at least 18 inches long, from tip to tail.
His shell was every bit of 12" long. 
Isn't he cool?!
