More information about Terrapin
They get the name "hinged" because they have a hinge on their shell which allows them to close it after they pull their head and front legs in.
They are mostly found in permanent water (rivers, lakes and waterholes) and are often seen basking on rocks, logs or the shoreline.
They are carnivorous feeding mostly on mulluscs and snails but they will also eat small fish and frogs or even insects. They are happy to eat carrion when they find it.
