Fly River Turtle facts: aka pig nosed turtle! | Animal Fact Files

Also known as the pig-nosed turtle, the Fly River turtle is a strange turtle indeed. The Fly River turtle could be described as a cross between a softshell turtle and a sea turtle. Softshell because it has a shell lacking scutes just like a softshell turtle, and sea turtle because it has large front flippers that are perfect for swimming - just like a sea turtle! Fly River turtles are also known as pig-nosed turtles because they have adorable, thick pig noses! Scientific Name: Carettochelys insculpta Range: Papua New Guinea and northern Australia Size: 1.5 feet (46cm); 44 pounds (20kg) Diet: snails, small fish, insect larvae, shrimp, crayfish, aquatic plants, fruits, and more Lifespan: unknown in the wild You can learn more on: Twitter - https://twitter.com/animalfactfiles Facebook - https://facebook.com/animalfactfiles ***The turtle from 2:58 to 3:18 is not a Fly River turtle!
