SummaryThe Hawksbill Turtle is a medium-sized turtle with a narrow head and beak-like snout. The shell has four large scales down either side which are thick and overlapping. It is found in tropical seas of northern Australia, the central Atlantic and Indo-Pacific regions.
SummaryFreshwater turtles are commonly seen in most Queensland waterways. Some species have long, snake-like necks, others are short-necked. Unlike the sea turtles and many foreign freshwater turtles, the Australian chelids fold their necks side-ways under the protective edge of the shell (pleurodirous). They have clawed, webbed feet and many species have distinct barbels on the chin.
