How big can snapping turtles get?

    There are two main kinds of snapping turtles, the Common and the Alligator. The Common Snapping Turtle gets up to around 40 pounds, on average, so they aren’t very big as far as turtles go. The Alligator Snapping Turtle, however, gets up to 140 pounds!!

    The alligator snapping turtle is one of the largest of the turtles.  An average snapping turtle can grow between 155 lbs and 175 lbs (70-80 kg).  There is also an unverified legend that a 403 lbs (183 kg) alligator snapping turtle was found in the Neosho River in Kansas in 1937.
