Northern Long-Necked Turtle

Chelodina rugosa


These iconic turtles inhabit various wetland habitats across the Top End, by June they are either buried in mud, aestivating to survive the dry, or have moved to permanent water bodies. C. rugosa have a unique adaptation to Top End seasonality, eggs are laid in a submerged burrow during the wet season and only hatch at the onset of heavy rainfall in the following wet, embryo development pauses for a time to ensure hatching coincides with favorable conditions.

Canvas, Chromalux aluminium, and acrylic products are supplied ready to hang. You will need to have rolled fine art papers mounted and framed before displaying. Please see 'Product and Shipping Information' for more details.
