We had one of these turtles in our backyard. It really did look like a
mini-dinosaur. Ours was a small one, but they can grow to be very large.

The alligator snapping turtle (Macrochelys temminckii) looks like a plated
dinosaur. It has a worm-shaped appendage on its tongue which it uses to lure
fish towards its mouth, which it then snaps shut with great force
