The Eastern Long-Necked Turtle
The Eastern long-necked turtle is like a reptilian version of a giraffe. Its snake-like neck is about as long as the length of its shell, which means that it can’t be retracted all the way. Instead, it has to bend its neck sideways to tuck it into its shell. It likely uses this long neck to make it easier to catch fish in the water of Australia, but don’t think that it is sticking its neck out into danger. When this turtle is threatened, it releases a stench from its musk glands that smells absolutely terrible.
