Many nest on my property since I am on a lake loaded with Turtles. I would say more than half are dug out by racoons and other critter and the eggs are eaten. 

We are removing a dam on upper Spruce Run Creek and the old beach of the lake saw lots of snapping turtle nests. Coyotes were the number one predators of those particular nests. Raccoons were number two. First time I saw coyote predation of a turtle nest.
