A video captures Fluffy, the alligator snapping turtle, discovered in a lake in Cumbria.

A Cumbrian lake was home to an alligator snapping turtle, known for its powerful jaw capable of crushing bones according to experts.

The creature originates from wetlands in the southern United States, specifically Florida. It possesses a sturdy and rough outer shell and a pointed and broad mouth.

According to veterinarians, Fluffy, the turtle who was recently brought in, is in decent health despite not being accustomed to the colder weather in the UK. However, it did show some signs of being sluggish initially. Fluffy will soon be transferred to a specialized wildlife facility in Cornwall.
