The Gulf Snapping Turtle, Elseya lavarackorum (Family Chelidae), is a medium to large-sized short-necked turtle (carapace length to ca. 350 mm, potentially to 500 mm), endemic to a small area of northern Australia in the vicinity of the Queensland -Northern Territory border. The species inhabits deep pools on permanently flowing spring-fed waterways in the upper to middle reaches of rivers, reaching its highest densities adjacent to intact native riparian vegetation.
