If the only turtle you've ever seen calmly meanders through your bedroom terrarium, let Coyote Peterson introduce to you the giants that lurk at Blendon Woods Metro Park. The local herpetologist has been scouring Ohio waters in search of a world record-sized common snapping turtle and is chronicling his adventures for a documentary series titled "Swamp Monsters."

If the only turtle you've ever seen calmly meanders through your bedroom terrarium, let Coyote Peterson introduce to you the giants that lurk at Blendon Woods Metro Park. The local herpetologist has been scouring Ohio waters in search of a world record-sized common snapping turtle and is chronicling his adventures for a documentary series titled "Swamp Monsters."

One of his favorite spots is the murky pond at Blendon Woods, where he and his crew have captured and released turtles weighing more than 50 pounds. On Sunday, he will discuss Ohio's diverse reptiles before wading in to capture several snappers.

Meet at the nature center.
