    Hello all I was reading on species of turtles earlier and I saw this species called "pink bellied snapping turtle" from New Guinea I think. I couldn't find much information about the species. Does anyone know anything about them and where I could read about them?
    PS. Mr. Elvis is getting huge and yes he is begging for food

    Sounds interesting. I will look it up on Google. Sounds rare too.

    They are pink belly sideneck turtles. I think calling them pink belly snappers is just a marketing ploy.
