Spiny Soft­shell Tur­tle

Wild - - WANT TO WORK WITH WILDLIFE -

This tur­tle is known as the pan­cake tur­tle be­cause of its large round shell. It’s soft and leath­ery to the touch, which is quite dif­fer­ent for a fresh­wa­ter tur­tle — usu­ally their shells are hard! The Spiny Soft­shell Tur­tle also has a long nose that looks like a bit of a snout. If you want to spot this tur­tle, you’ll have to head to the wa­ter — they’re usu­ally found by rivers and lakes.
