The oblong turtle (Chelodina oblonga), also known as the south-western snake-necked turtle, is a semi-aquatic freshwater turtle characterised by a long neck of similar length to the shell that folds sideways under the shell.
It can be found in higher rainfall parts of the south-west of Western Australia, living in a broad range of seasonal and permanent freshwater habitats including wetlands, lakes and rivers. It has a distinctive carapace (top shell) that narrows slightly at the front and is brown to black in colour. Males are generally smaller than females with longer tails and a slightly more curved plastron (under shell). The oblong turtle’s diet predominantly consists
of a broad range of macro-invertebrates.
