I see you also have these guys down in your neck of the woods. Don't you just love their leathery shells and long pig-like noses. They can really extend their necks out a long ways if they need to.
We have quite a few here in our area, but as you already stated they spend most of the time under water so you don't see them very often.

This is quite a curious species of Turtles, Brenda. Its snout has a marked resemblance to that of a pig. The eyes remind me of a frog.
Good capture in its natural habitat.
Thanks and regards.

This is really a special creature. I didn't know about this Turtle-species before you have published a picture from it in the past. We always can learn on this site :-). Interesting video-clip too.
Well chosen framing, natural colours.
Thanks a lot.
