Snake-Neck Turtle (Chelodina Longicollis)

The Snake-Neck Turtle is native to Australia and is identified by it's grey/black body and especially its long neck that must be tucked sideways for protection.

The Snake-Neck Turtle grows to approximately 20 to 25cms. Both males and females grow to the same size and are identical to each other in every way, making sexing of these guys extremely difficult. It is unknown just how long they will live.

The Snake-Neck Turtle is easy to keep but care should be taken when hand feeding as they are very quick! Apart from this, when food is not around, they are very placid and make great pets.

The Snake-Neck Turtle is very hardy and is ideal for those who want to keep something exotic.
