Alligator Snapping Turtle Assessments in West Tennessee

To overcome the incomplete distribution of alligator snapping turtles (ASTs) in West Tennessee, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) is conducting systematic and thorough sampling of ASTs found in tributaries of the Mississippi River. It is hoped that valuable information regarding the distribution, population status and genetics of ASTs in the state will help inform and enhance restoration and management of this species.
