Mary River Turtle 5

  • Paul Lawston 8y

    What a bizarre turtle! I presume that's water weed on its head. I saw freshwater turtles in Queensland in the crater lakes up in the Atherton Tablelands, but I'm guessing they weren't this species.

    This is the STRANGEST looking creature I have EVER seen! But man, it's cool!

    This is the endangered Mary River Turtle with a nice amount of algae growing on her head. This little girl is wild, living in the soon to be dammed Mary River, the only river where they are found.

    Hey Dude Great Hair style!
    Perhaps this pic should be seen more widely, it would be sure to create some more sympathy for their plight.
