Description

One of the rarest of the Snake-Necks, Parker’s Snake-Necked Turtles are found only in lakes and rivers on the island of New Guinea – and no where else in the world. In the US, only one breeder has been able to hatch them with regularity…

Parker’s are hands down the prettiest of all the Snake-Necks, with white, pale green, and sometimes even yellow head markings. The carapace (top shell) is normally light brown with markings that match the head along the marginal (outer) scutes. The plastron (bottom shell) is white, yellow or even pink…

Just like the other Snake-Necks, Parker’s are an exceptionally long necked super predator. Initially a bit clumsy as hatchlings, these little carnivores quickly transform into one of the most impressive hunting species ever to prowl a glass tank… They do very well with other snake-necks and other highly aquatic Asian species like Pink Belly Side-Necks…
