    Originally purchased in a Brisbane pet store so that narrows it down.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks very much.

    Your turtle is/was (sorry) a Saw-shelled turtle - Myuchelys latisternum.

    Was it on a reptile licence?? Being from a QLD store, you should have had detailed movement papers accompanying the turtle from the moment of purchase.

    Thanks very much. I thought he may have been a Saw-shell.

    I hope to get a another one soon.

    Thanks for your help!

    No worries. Regarding your paper work and licensing, do you have either?
