2. Eastern Long-Necked Turtle

At first glance, this turtle doesn't seem to be particularly unorthodox - until it extends its neck to eat. Commonly found in Eastern Australia, the Eastern Long-Necked Turtle is the giraffe of its kind. In fact, its neck is so long that rather than retract it into its shell, it has to turn itself sideways. Nicknamed "The Stinker," this turtle also emits a particularly foul-smelling odor if it gets startled in any way.
