    Cool little guy. Its true, there aren't enough photos of them on here, but that goes for turtles in general.

    APS is just a cross section of society. It give's us a view of all of the different aspects of society that we don't usually get exposed to and possibly try to avoid, as well as the areas we are all comfortable with. At the end of the day, it is what you make of it.

    They are here in SA but are on specialist permits, not cheap either so rarity much play a bit to do with it. Wish they were the same price as other turtles :)

    I bet they are impossible to breed as they look mostly aquatic.

    He eats vegitarian pellets made for cichlids, val which is a type of plant, shrimp, fish some times, he loves fruit, rockmelon is his favourite. They are hard to breed because it takes them 18yrs to hit sexual maturity. I wish they were more common in captivity, i feel like the only person in australia that owns one apart from zoo's lol

    They are very cool.
    I actually saw some Australian pig nose at an expo in Munich. Hardly surprising though I guess....
