Big-headed turtle (Kaiyodo - Animatales)
« on: February 13, 2013, 01:09:05 PM »
Big-headed turtle, Platysternon megacephalum (Kaiyodo, Animatales, Series 11, Secret S08b)
Carapace length 1 1/2 inches (3.8 cm). Total length 3 1/8 inches (8.0 cm.).


Comparison with snapping turtle, Chelydra serpentina (Kaiyodo, Animatales, Series 7)

Although the big-headed turtle might be confused with a snapping turtle, it actually diverged from the pond turtles.  I could not bring myself to splurge on this precious gem.  It was a Valentine's gift from my wife.













Allow me to applaud my wife for her expertise with Photoshop.

What an awesome figure the Animatales Big-headed Turtle is! :) And lovely photos, too, stemturtle! Unfortunately it's not easy to find (or really expensive)... :'( It was a great idea to include the Animatales Snapping Turtle in one photo for a comparison since the species are sometimes confused with each other - although they are really not that similar. Platysternon megacephalum is much smaller, has carapace scutes devoid of keels, and a relatively "normal" plastron compared with the highly reduced cross-shaped thing true snapping turtles have.
