    It's a crocodilian but not a's an Indian gavial. Not a
    snapping turtle either. Still a cute photo though :)

  3. The turtle could be a snapping turtle, though a snapping turtle usually has
    ridges on the shell. It is hard to know what size turtle that is, since the
    crocodilian could be a juvenile. Not too many fresh water terrapins would
    grow past 30" so it could be a snapping turtle. The face has the right look,
    though the beak is not pointy (snapping turtles usually have a pointy nub on
    top of the nasal sockets).

    The gavial is in the crocodilia order, according to what I've read, so
    I don't consider it incorrect to call it a crocodile.

    The one in the picture was 8 feet long or so, including the tail, and
    the turtle was around 2 feet long.

    Here are a couple more pics from different angles:

    The pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490.
