We here describe a new species of pelomedusoid turtle from a geological formation in Madagascar otherwise known for its exquisitely preserved fossil birds, dinosaurs, and crocodilians. The new turtle possesses an unusually flattened skull combined with a particularly gracile lower jaw and enlarged tongue bones, which not only must have given it a frog-like appearance, but also suggests that it was a specialized suction feeder that fed on small-bodied living prey using quick strikes.
