I found a turtle that has similarities like a snapping turtle. The only thing is, I\'ve NEVER seen a snapping turtle with a shell like this one. It\'s brown w/ crossed lines, but thet\'re raised. Almost to a point. At the tail end of his shell, there are points. Like a jagged edge. The thing is, the points are pretty consistent. he has a VERY long tail & a pointed nose like a snapper, but his shell doesn\'t look like the ones i\'ve seen before. Could ANYONE PLEASE help me with this. Thanks!

First of all, where did you find it?

It sounds like it might be an Alligator Snapping turtle. However I am not positive on that. I only saw one and that was years ago.
