Did you know that the United States' 4th largest city is home to the largest freshwater turtle in North America? Living within its murky bayous, the Alligator Snapping Turtle is arguably Houston, Texas' most awe-inspiring resident. With a truly prehistoric appearance, featuring a set of one of nature’s most powerful jaws, the Alligator Snapping Turtle is in a class of its own. And, Houston is home to one of the most robust populations of it in the United States—unusual, yet fitting for one of the country’s most robust cities.

Learn all about TSA's long-term research and conservation program for the Alligator Snapping Turtle in Houston, Texas, by joining Jordan Gray and Eric Munscher for "Urban Monsters: Alligator Snapping Turtles in the Bayou City," a FREE webinar.
