Tips For Coloring Snapping Turtle
What colors should I use for a snapping turtle coloring page?
Snapping turtles have a rough, often algae-covered carapace (top shell), which can range from brown to black. The plastron (bottom shell) is usually much smaller and lighter, often a yellowish or cream color. Their body and head are the same dark color as the carapace, but lighter parts can also be a reddish color. The eyes can be any color from yellow to green.
How can I add more detail and realism to my snapping turtle coloring?
To add detail and depth to your snapping turtle coloring page, focus on texture. The shell of the snapping turtle, especially the top shell, is heavily ridged and often covered in algae. Lightly coloring with greens and blues in some parts can depict this. The skin is also heavily wrinkled and scored, use lighter and darker shades to show this texture.
What specific features of the snapping turtle should I pay attention to while coloring?
One of the distinguishing features of the snapping turtle is its exceptionally large head and powerfully-built jaws. Its tail, is also uniquely long and saw-toothed, similar to a dinosaur and can be given additional emphasis in your coloring. Their feet are webbed and tipped with sharp claws, so attention to detail in these areas can add interest and realism to your coloring.
Can you provide some interesting facts about the snapping turtle that I could incorporate into my art?
Yes, Snapping turtles are one of the largest freshwater turtles in the world, some can reach up to 35 lbs. They are quite limber for their size, capable of extending their necks rapidly to snap at prey or potential threats. Snapping turtles are also known to have a long life span, some living up to 100 years. Adding smaller creatures they prey on like small fish or frogs could make your artwork more interesting as well as educational.
