Yes, it was !

 


The story

The shell of an enormous prehistoric turtle that would have been eight feet long has been discovered in Colombia's Tatacoa Desert. Analysis of the shell showed several bite marks indicating this animal was hunted by enormous crocodiles that lived at the same time, some of which could have been over 40 feet in length.
The turtle, Stupendemys geographicus, lived during the mid to late Miocene, 13 to 7 million years ago. It represents the biggest complete turtle shell ever discovered.
