Fine art illustration of an Alligator Snapping Turtle (Macrochelys temminckii.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The inked version of the Alligator Snapping Turtle was completed in 2003 and the color added digitally in 2007. The drawing was touched up again in 2009. I’ve noticed some pretty large color variations in this reptiles, from the dark blue-black phase like this one here but sort of a brown-grayish version also exists, which I might illustrate at some point.
