Side-necked turtle, (suborder Pleurodira), any species of turtle belonging to the families Chelidae, Pelomedusidae, and Podocnemididae.

The common name is derived from the animal’s defensive posture. Instead of retracting the head and neck into the shell for protection, turtles of this group lay the head and neck to the side, beneath the margins of the shell. Aquatic turtles are fun to watch, especially when they're as unique looking as the African sideneck turtle.

These turtles got their common name because they're unable to tuck their heads entirely inside their shells, so they tuck them to the side instead. Sidenecks are on the larger side as far as turtles go, and they can live for several decades.

The neck in these two families is of a different structure from that of other turtles and is folded sideways under the shell for concealment instead of being pulled straight back. Specimens referred to Osteopygis (Late Cretaceous-Paleocene, North America) represent a chimera, a polyphyletic mixture of taxa.

The holotype of Osteopygis (AMNH ) and more complete referred postcranial specimens resemble non-marine stem cryptodires (“macrobaenids”). Because the skull material historically referred to Osteopygis shares synapomorphies with cheloniid sea turtles, all.

Turtle - Turtle - Origin and evolution: The earliest turtles known date to the Late Permian Epoch (the Permian Period lasted from million to about million years ago). Whereas living turtles are toothless, many ancestral forms possessed teeth.

The vast majority of the or so species of turtles and tortoises are "cryptodires," meaning these reptiles retract their heads straight back into their shells when threatened.

The rest are "pleurodires," or side-necked turtles, which fold their necks to one side when retracting their heads. Chupacabrachelys complexus, n. gen. sp., is an unusual bothremydid pleurodire of the tribe Taphrosphyini found in the Campanian Aguja Formation in the Big Bend region of West Texas.

The type example is one of the most complete bothremydid specimens known. Its skull and lower jaw are very narrow, triangular, and dorsoventrally compressed, with the coronoid process posterior to midlength of. The Pleurodira are one of the two living suborders of turtles, the other being the division between these two suborders represents a very deep evolutionary divide between two very different types of turtles.

The physical differences between them, although anatomical and largely internal, are nonetheless significant, and the zoogeographic implications of them are substantial. The late Captain Hugh P. McGowan, U.S.
