How the Turtle Got Its Shell: Addendum
eBlogger does not like it when you try to screw with a long, image-heavy post. When you try to edit said post by, say, adding a new picture, the rest of the post goes to hell. Anyway, here is another fantastic picture by Matt Celeskey of Chinlechelys, showing the known shell fragments and what they represent. There's a little more to the skeleton, including some vertebrae, a bit of plastron, and cervical spines (like Proganochelys has). But the carpacial elements are the most telling bits.
