- wait a bit bigger than the one we cause we're gonna have to remove that why are you holding the place [Music] by now we all know that snapping turtles are voracious predators eating any unsuspecting aquatic creatures that come across their paths sometimes this even includes worms that unfortunately for the turtle are attached to a fishing hook there is a snapping turtle right down here he's just hunting I think this is noseless he's a very he's a turtle that I've caught here several times yep that is him he's gonna start to go see him he's gonna be very grumpy everybody just stay back oh he stinks that is noseless one of the most famous snapping turtles that lives here you see how doesn't have a nose but he's quite a bit bigger than the one we cause oh he does can we help him out we're gonna have to remove that does go fishing hook in his mouth I do okay everybody stay back okay where's Madol has my pack sliced up in school here this okay you got it here I'll get it okay can somebody get me a stick budget watch it that's good put that down the ground there you go that's good he's super super aggressive right now so everybody needs to stay way back okay now this is super dangerous don't ever do what I'm about to do I'm gonna try to remove that fishing hook from the side of his mouth you're not supposed to ever be fishing here at the whole NAR berate um I didn't say something to those people earlier but this is what happens snapping turtles occasionally get hooked now he's gonna be fine even if I can't remove that but I do want to remove it if possible so what I'm gonna do is actually have him fight onto his stick and keep his focus there and then try to go in and get that hook out so Maura you hold him in place he cut it too oh nice yeah okay now noseless does not have a hook in his mouth and he can continue hunting and being healthy although he does seem super healthy and there's a little blonde 40 he sliced me open with his bat cloth so guys what you just saw me do right there was to help this turtle right if you ever catch a snapper turtle you see a hook in its mouth just let it be it's it's probably going to be just fine unless I'm there that's a really dangerous maneuver then I would never recommend anybody try to perform but because we care so much about these turtles we want to make sure that they are in good health now that did not hurt him at all they have virtually no feeling in their beaks and their jaws they are so incredibly strong that beak is solid bone and kind of like cuticle like your your fingernail is so that beak is constantly generating throughout the course of the turtles life and now noseless is going to be a very happy turtle to not have this nasty fishing hook in his mouth dude got a turtle look out of a snapping turtles mouth or a fishing hook out of a snapping turtles mouth all right guys as you can see noseless is very aggressive right now so I need everybody to step back be very happy to have that hook out of his mouth you okay buddy yeah he's doing good now all right so I'm gonna let him go back down into the water setting everybody make a clear path so that I can get through all right come on buddy watch your fingers right here already see say by noseless [Music] there you saw this she hook out of a turtle's mouth yep personally no injuries on that one in the event that you ever catch a snapping turtle on the end of your fishing line never attempt to remove the hook yourself the best plan of action is to alert a local wildlife center with any luck they will send a representative to safely and properly remove the hook if you want to take an epic adventure from the comforts of your family room make sure to go back and watch our mega episode where I let the golden ticket winners on an expedition into the wilds of the Holden Arboretum and don't forget subscribe so you can join me in the crew ready back there way back wait he is a giant don't like it oh my gosh
