What is this creature

Asked January 20, 2017, 7:39 PM EST

This was in the edge of a pond. Head sticking out breathing out bubbles. Blinking eyes. Pulled head into mud when I got to close.

Harris County Texas

to me it looks like the head of a soft shell turtle. It looks like it is buried in the mud of the bottom of the stream or pond sticking it's head out to breath.
