Mystery turtle

Way too hot today for any birding success. But while I was failing to see many birds, I came across this little chap. 

 

I'm used to seeing plenty of red-bellied turtles while I'm out and about, but I'm pretty certain he's not one of those. I was going to pick him up and point him in the direction of the weeds, when I had a sudden thought that he could be a snapping turtle. And I didn't fancy seeing if he lived up to his name.
