Re: NFC: snappers, cooters, maps and sliders (turtle race)

i read it someplace that the painted turts go veggie when they get larger. i
cant verify this however. i brought it up hoping that someone who might know
for sure might enlighten me. if true i would leave a few of the larger
sliders in the pond but remove the smaller ones. i put a pic of the turtle
trap on the web at http://www.hillbillyhighway.com/turtletrap.  the pic is
of the smaller one that i used for testing. right now i am putting the
finishing touches on one 6' square and made of 4" pvc.
