I must admit the shape of its neck makes me feel a bit eek as I am not a reptile fan really. Having said that, Farmgirl has literally sat outside and watched the turtle swim around its trough all afternoon and so it has provided lots of school holiday entertainment. Farmboy was also interested but did get bored after the first hour or so of watching!!
|Long-Necked Turtle With Eeky Snakey Neck|
These turtles are often found in dams and creeks in our area and can get quite big. They will also eat down the yabby population in a dam and so many farmers are not huge fans. It's definitely a prehistoric looking animal, that's for sure. It's a more welcome reptile than the snake we found in the garden on Sunday afternoon anyway.
So - how's your day going? Any random reptile visits?
