The spiny softshell turtle is the largest freshwater turtle in North America. They have a soft leathery shell and webbed feet. They spend most of their time in the water. They extend their nostrils out of the water to breath oxygen, but they can also extract oxygen from the water through their skin and stay underwater for up to 5 hours.

Made out of sustainably harvested balsa wood, these lightweight ornaments are hand-carved and then painted with non-toxic acrylic paint by a cooperative of skilled artisans on Isla Solentiname, Nicaragua. Approximate size: 5" x 2".
