Fly River Turtle – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Fly River Turtle:

The Fly River Turtle - also called the Pig-Nosed Turtle - is an aquatic freshwater reptile native to northern Australia and Southern New Guinea. It is a fairly unique species of freshwater turtle; their feet are flippers, resembling those of marine turtles. The nose looks like that of a pig, having the nostrils at the end of a fleshy snout, hence the common name. The carapace is typically grey or olive, with a leathery texture, while the plastron is cream-colored. Males can be distinguished from females by their longer and narrower tails. Pig-nosed turtles can grow to about 70 cm (28 in) shell-length, with a weight of over 20 kg (44 lb). They are occasionally kept as pets in aquariums. The species is omnivorous, eating a wide variety of plant and animal matter, including the fruit and leaves of figs, as well as crustaceans, mollusks and insects. The species experienced a population decline of more than 50% in the thirty years between 1981 and 2011.
