They've discovered a new species of gargantuan "alligator snapping turtle", and if it freaks you out, You're normal.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute found this new species in the Suwanee River. So it's called the Suwanee snapping alligator turtle. As you can tell from the struggling researcher, this bad boy is heavy. He's 100 pounds! Along with this one, they also found a 46 pound male and a 44 pound female in a tributary near Gainesville, Florida.
