Snapping Turtle Crittercam

Greg Marshall, inventor of the Crittercam (a camera that attaches to animals to record their activity from their perspective) came to Connecticut to work with Mystic Aquarium turtle expert Dr. Tobias Landberg.  Together they figured out a safe and secure method to attach the Crittercam to a snapping turtle’s shell.  They released the turtle into the wild and will be able to learn about its habits and movements in the water.

The Mystic Aquarium has used the Crittercam before on beluga whales.
