DFO’s Weird Animals — Snake-Necked Turtle


AP Photo/Zoological Society of San Diego, Ken Bohn

This photo provided by the San Diego Zoo shows a recently-hatched endangered Roti Island snake-necked turtle Thursday in San Diego. The snake-necked turtle is the most geographically restricted of any turtle species, only inhabiting the southern part of Roti Island, a small Indonesian island. The San Diego Zoo is part of conservation and breeding efforts of this Asian species that is now almost extinct in the wild.
