(Chelodina longicollis)

Often hard to avoid as they cross the roads, the Eastern Long-Neck Turtle grows up to 22 cm over their lifetime. Clean waterways are essential to their survival and in turn they keep the mosquito population down.

They eat a variety of animals including flying ants, worms, tadpoles, snails and yabbies. Females lay 2 to 10 eggs in the banks of waterways, including dams, up to three times each year.
