What an interesting turtle he is. I've never seen a turtle with such a long neck. Cool shot.

they have the longest neck of all Australian Turtles. The C. Expansa are endangered, looking at the date of the photo I would guess that this was a female on her way to or from laying, unfortunately her nest will most like be dug up by foxes. AFTCRA is going to be starting a program to assist these turtles soon.
