Wild snapping turtle, Chelhydra serpintina, meat is a delicacy. Some say a turtle has up to 7 different kinds of meat. The light meat is similar to walleye and the dark meat comparable to poultry. When prepared properly it is very tender and juicy. The common snapping turtle is a prolific, abundant species, but in some states there is a season to allow the turtle to breed and remain abundant.
