@fedex I really appreciate you leaving my living animal outside in the rain. My doorsteps was only a few feet away so I’m not really sure why it happened but it did. The box was clearly labeled, “Live Animal” I’m just glad she didn’t die sitting there in a wet box.
Snickers likes his hollow tree not just as a hide but also a nice place to climb. I am happy seeing him roam around at night. It makes me feel good as a reptile lover to see my scaly kids healthy and happy. Tomorrow I get to hold him for the first time since I brought him home. I am looking forward to building trust
This is an Eastern Long-Necked Turtle.
It is a snake necked Turtle that inhabits a wide variety of water bodies and is local to South East Australia.
It is a side-necked turtle, meaning that it bends its head sideways into its shell rather than pulling it directly back.
The neck of this Turtle can even be sometimes longer than its shell! It has an average lifespan of 50 years.
