Big Turtle, Little Star
There is an awful void of popular knowledge about Stupendemys. The name alone, meaning Astonishing Turtle, would seem to require more coverage than the turtle has received on the internet, in documentaries, or in movies and television. The giant turtle is shown some love in the amateur video sphere as more than one fossil enthusiast has dedicated some time to describing the turtle and sharing illustrations and other recreations in their videos. The most informational of these videos was posted by a user from the United Kingdom known as The Sarcastic Raptor who posts videos about games as often as videos about extinct animals. Enjoy his description and the images he has found for his video below.
