They were proud owners of a small pig-like nose and a large smiling mouth, giving them the appearance of always being happy. They have a smooth black-to-brown shell; the top of the limbs is grayish, whereas the underside is more yellowish. These turtles are semi-aquatic. They will take up residence in temporary marshes, creeks, and rain holes.
They are carnivores and will feed on a range of water-going invertebrates, birds, and mammals seized at the water’s edge. Also, these reptiles will spend part of their day basking in the sun, but it is too hot in tropical areas. As of now, the species is not of any particular conservation concern.
