Obviously fresh water. I pull one out of my farm pond every year. Pound for pound one of the ugliest, meanest creatures on planet earth. Modern day dinosaur. A shovel handle would be little effort for an adult one. Bass Pro Shops here usually have one in their 5000 gallon tank.

You CAN pick them up if you know how. They get huge and I can't imagine housing a dirtier creature. They live in the slime on the bottom of ponds, lurking.
