Mata mata are some of the most unique looking turtles in the world. These turtles are carnivorous feeding on fish and invertebrates. As adults they will attain a large size of 18” and 30+ pounds. Similar to snapping turtles, these are very sedentary turtles that use camouflage to lay in wait until prey swims along. They are native to South America.
