It looks to be an aged female due to the high domed carapace. I reckon it increases their capacity to lay bigger clutches.

Hi Patrick - Your comment inspired me to do a bit of reading on Eastern long-necked turtles. i found a good article here: http://animaldiversity.org/accounts/Chelodina_longicollis/ By Monique Jarrett. You are probably right about the gender as Monique says females grow larger with more domed carapaces. I've sat quietly and counted the dam population in years past. (about 12-17 on this small dam) I'd say this pair would be as big as I've seen. So probably, as you say old, females.
