An Australian definition of a long neck : (Noun) A 750ml bottle of beer. Example: I’m going to sink a few long necks with my mates.
Here’s another sort of long neck my husband spied and photographed today.
Here’s the underside.
Because we’re surrounded by water, it’s not the first one we’ve noticed. We posted some pics of another turtle a while back. In the water, (click here) and another one digging a hole (click here). This one was also digging a hole in the paddock.
We’ve just sown in some seed and my husband came rushing in, telling me to get the cameras, there was a turtle in the back paddock. It must have been attracted by the water and decided to lay some eggs. We took some photos from a distance being careful not to disturb her. My husband made a great effort to lie in the mud to get a shot. Perhaps the turtle thought that to be normal behaviour, because it wasn’t bothered.
