Depends on the turtle. Alligator Snapping Turtle, when mature, is said to have 11 or more distinctly different flavors depending on where it comes from on its anatomy, kinda like light or dark meat on a chicken.
People have said they can taste beef, pork, chicken, goat, shrimp, fish, lobster, and others from one animal.
I've only caught and cooked small common snapping turtles into Piquant or other Creole dishes, so you can't tell if there are different flavors.

Pacific tree frogs are native to my area. I sometimes find them when I'm cleaning gutter downspouts. I have no idea how they survive in the wild, as we get zero rain from April-November.

Yep. Turtle is like shopping at the meat market. Some really good eating…The old ones may have a more Monsanto/Conagra taste to them so I don’t bother with them. :?

In AZ. they bury themselves in the sand until the rains come in.

The frogs bury up in the sand? I knew that toads do, but I didn't know that about frogs...but, I guess they gotta stay *somewhere*. :)
