Snappers have a nasty temperament on land.  As mentioned before they will go defensive ( sometimes offence ) when approached which includes hissing, snapping and make themselves look bigger, kinda cute actually - steer clear, the buggers have reach and bite.  While I have never heard of an offensive attack in water I do remember hearing a couple stories of people being bit in the foot.  Two things come to mind - the snapper was in ambush position waiting for food to come by and acidentally got its head stepped on resulting in a bite.  Secondly, they are quite curious and wouldn't surprise me if once in a while a little curious kiss ends up being a bite.  A marina in Penetang tells people not to swim in it because of the heavy presence of snapper, perhaps there has been an incident or two?  One thing for sure is if you have no experience with them do not attempt to handle them - you can seriously injure the turtle or it can seriously injure you!

I shoot with a Nokia AW110 here - takes a bit of getting used to.  I haven't got the underwater shooting of moving objects down pat yet though I haven't give it a fair chance.  Friend shoots with an Olympus Tough and the pics turn out pretty good as well.

Here are some pics from my camera.

Not sure about within the park but just east about an hour at a place called Wilno Tavern - numerous positive ID's.
