The guys around here who hunt snapping turtles would make a nice soup out of them ! Two years ago we took a cruise out of Tampa and spent a day in the Cayman islands...there was a turtle farm and accross the road a canning factory...and one of the tourists wanted to know why they raised turtles..i think the question was ignored !

Johnstamp right you are its a Japanese prefect stamp Z113 from 1991, the prefect stamps have a z catalog number..they are issued for different regions of Japan..something like if California issued their own postage stamps...

Ahhh...Turtles and turtle soup. Brings back memories of 'noodling' for snapping turles in the Fox River up in Illinois. My favorite dish was just pan-fried turtle. Yup... like chicken, almost.

Ive heard of frogs tasting like chicken (they have a town in the Philippines that specializes in cooking rice frogs) but I did not know that turtles also taste like chicken

Yes parts of the snapper can taste like chicken..it does not have a fish taste and like chicken it has light and dark meat..the soup has a heartier taste than chicken soup..i think if they did not know what it was..many people would really enjoy it !!
