The common snapping turtle shells are sorted by size. The shells do not have bottom plates.
We often get requests for matched sets. The turtle shells come in loose. We can do our best to get shells that match as well as possible. This takes time to sort through the shells and we charge an extra US$11.00 per set for labor.
