They are identified by the presence of alveolar ridges on the triturating surfaces of the mouth and the presence of a complex bridge strut. The Australian Snapping Turtles are largely herbivorous with specialized mouth structures for eating fruits, however they will eat animal products if opportunity arises. The various species can be found in large numbers where they are still abundant, e.g. Northern Territory of Australia, however a number of the populations have become increasingly rare and some are now listed as endangered. They grow to a maximum size of around 35cm.
