The Dirt Turtle, Foeduchelys hospes, is a strange, brown, omnivorous testudinoid turtle from the wetlands of Skull Island.

A curious addition to Skull Island’s cast of zoological misfits is the dirt turtle, an unremarkable species but for its habits of eating the feces of other river inhabitants like Malamagnus. Their fecal diet is supplemented with insects and snails. The species is effectively a marshland cleanup crew, removing waste left by dinosaurs and other larger animals using the waterways.
