Are these bite marks from a snapping turtle?

EFE Cable bitten

Some kind of  hungry varmint has been biting through an aerator cable in the lake in front of my house. We dredged it up today and replace it with a new cable, but a second thought has me thinking we need to invest in about 200 feet of conduit? The electrician believes the damage is from a snapping turtle due to the depth of the cable in the smelly muck, but I’m still suspecting muskrats. Any experts?
