"Also common is Axestemys splendida (Axe Turtle), a species of giant turtle closely related to the modern Florida and Yangtze Softshells. It reaches very large sizes, with a carapace length of up to a meter or more. As the name suggests, these animals lack the bony scutes found on the shells of most turtles. They are aquatic carnivores, inhabiting the many freshwater systems of Hell Creek where they feed on fish, amphibians and invertebrates."

Axestemys was a soft shelled turtle that lived from the Late Cretaceous to the Eocene in North America and Europe. It was a large turtle, reaching lengths of over 1,5 meters, making it the largest known turtle in the Hell Creek Formation. It is slated to appear in Saurian.

Currently, Axestemys isn't found in the game, but it is expected to appear as an AI creature in the future.
