    Depends on how big it is. The Turtle Man on TV has been bitten and sometimes he has had to use his knife to open the jaws.

      I've never been bitten by one and my idea is to leave them alone. I don't think this is something you would want to experience with a snapper of any size.

        Around the Saginaw Bay area I have seen snappers that up until that point I didn't believe were capable of getting that size in MI. I imagine they could take a finger if the got it just right.

        My grandfather actually liked Turtle soup. He had a small hatchet/cleaver and a length of broom handle. When a snapper was caught, he would put a broom handle in-front of the mouth and the snapper would go for it. When it bit down, down came the cleaver. The length of broom handle had some deep indents on it.

          A small box turtle drew blood when it bit my finger. Didn't really hurt, but I'm sure a big snapper would.

            My grandpa liked snapper too, my mother used to tell me the story of the day she checked traps with her dad. She says he put them in a sack and they would bite the sack, he killed them by the car to keep them fresh.
