My question is, after it heals are they going to polish the shell with turtle wax?

heh heh heh, good one Shad.

I've heard about that being done before.
Must have been one brave fiberglass master -- snapping turtles are mean.

This is a pretty common practice for vets to fix turtles shells this way. I have been keeping turtles for a long time and last year my musk turtle climbed out of the cage, fell to the floor and cracked his shell. The vet just fixed him up with some fiberglass, it is not permanent however, their shells grow and shed from time to time, so when the shell is fully healed the glass falls off. Also i had another turtle that died a long time ago, he had an infection that ate away a hole in the bottom of his shell. The vet told us that if we had caught it in time he would have been able to clean out the infection and fill it in with epoxy.
