The Roti Island Snake-necked Terrapin, also called Roti Island Snake-necked Turtle, is one of several "snake-necked" terrapin species all native to Australia-Pacific.
The Roti Island Snake-necked is native to swamps, lakes and rice paddies of Roti Island, Indonesia, and was recognised as a new species only in
1994. It is already critically endangered by over-collection by humans.
The neck, when extended, can reach as long as the body. When withdrawn, it is withdrawn sideways into the shell.
Its diet includes aquatic insects and plants.
