Shows the life cycle of a typical reptile, the snapping turtle - its birth, its growth, and its struggle for existence and survival. Natural photography reveals its activities, its encounters with other animal life, how it gets its food and lays its eggs, how its young hatch and develop, and how it hibernates.
