Here's a pic of a two headed baby snapping turtle that I found years ago in my yard.

Don't drink the water and quietly move right away.

I've had turtle a couple times in the BVIs.  Once in curry, and was fairly good.  Another time on Anegada, where it was one of the worst meals I ever had. Still in the shell. I ended up throwing it off the dock when no one was looking. :upck:

Anegada Davita? I know him.

Thanks for all the insight.  I was curious about trying one but I think I'll leave them in the ponds where they belong.

This was my conclusion as well.  

 

I have no issues with harvesting them. But the questions of how contaminated they are, keep me away.    

 

I can get my meats in other cleaner organisms.

When I first saw this post, I remembered I had a cookbook with a bunch of turtle recipes, but for the life of me I could not remember which one.   Turns out, it was a cookbook by none other than Provincetown’s beloved Howard Mitcham.  In addition to recipes for snapping turtle and green turtle, he explains how to break them down.

I have another book of his called the Provincetown Seafood Cookbook.   They just recently rereleased it.
