The Mary River turtle lives exclusively in the waters of the Mary River in south-east Queensland, Australia.

The Mary River turtle managed to avoid detection for so long possibly due to its extraordinary respiratory system that allows it to breath underwater, therefore seldom requiring to emerge out of the water for air.

The turtle performs this unusual feat by breathing through its cloaca, an orifice used by reptiles for excretion and mating.

One of the most distinctive feature of the Mary River turtle is its shock of green hair and whiskers.

Hahaha, wow... green hair and all. Now if you were in the river and saw that floating on the surface you would just think it was some random floating moss/algae, they would blend in well from above. How amazing.

Someone once said that nature would continue to flourish without us. I agree with that, do these animals really need us? they seem to be thriving just fine without our detection.. happy as ever

This term is defined as humans' innate need to affiliate with other life such as plants and animals. This essentially means that humans have a desire to be near nature.

This built in desire may be the result of spending the majority of our evolutionary history (over 99%) closely connected to nature.
