Snapping turtle in central NJ?

Does anyone know where I can buy a whole (and preferably already dead) snapping turtle in central NJ? I'm in Monmouth County (Exit 109/114) but will venture beyond my lair if necessary.

    1. No but I have to ask, what are you doing with it? chinatown would be my top guess LOL

      1. I don't know where you can buy one.....but I'll let you come camp in my yard for a couple days as we get them as visitors every so often from the creek adjacent to my home. Awnry little guys I can tell you that much.

        1. I agree Chinatwon. Which leads me to suggest perhaps the Asian Food Market might be able to order one for you.

          1. A more sincere answer might be the Hong Kong Market on Rt. 18 in East Brunswick. It has been a long time since I was there but they carried a TON of exotic asian fish and more. That might be your best shot. Good luck and please due tell what you plan on doing with it.
