Look at this absolute dude.

Keepers at a zoo in Germany are celebrating after successfully breeding Roti Island snake-necked turtles for the very first time.

The species is considered to be extremely endangered and hails from Roti Island, which is south west of Timor and north of Australia. The new babies at Mountain Zoo are currently around 3cm long but will grow to around 24cm.
