Mata Mata Turtle

You can find the Mata Mata Turtle in the Amazon Exhibit at the Texas State Aquarium.

The Mata Mata has a long snout that it uses as a snorkel. The tip of the snout emerges from the water when breathing, allowing for minimal movement.

This Thursday is World Turtle Day! Come by the aquarium and check out all of the turtles that call the Texas State Aquarium home.
