Australian snake necked turtle behavior

One of the easiest Australian Turtles to care for, the Australian Snake Necked Turtle is popular among novice and expert turtle lovers alike.

The Australian Snake Necked Turtle is one of the most widely kept and loved turtles in Australia. It is also quite popular in other parts of the world. The Australian Snake Necked Turtle is generally shy as a rule, but will adapt quickly to living in captivity and may eventually be one of the most rewarding turtles you can keep as a pet. Turtles that are not used to being handled will often emit a musky odor that dissipates after they become acclimated to being handled. The Australian Snake Necked Turtle seems to adapt well to life in captivity. They become tolerant of handling quickly and even those that are wild caught will eat from the hand within a couple of weeks.
