Mary River Turtle
he Mary River turtle is an endangered short-
necked turtle that inhabits the Mary River in South-East Queensland, Australia.
It hails from the Mary River which flows through the town of Maryborough in the south-east of the state of Queensland, Australia.
Adult Mary River turtles have an elongated, streamlined carapace that can be plain in color or intricately patterned. Overall color can vary from rusty red to brown and almost black. The plastron varies from cream to pale pink. The skin coloration is similar to that of the shell and often has salmon pink present on the tail and limbs. The iris can be pale blue.
The lurid green Mohawk is actually a type of algae, growing on the turtle’s skin.

Is that your fan?
n fact, this bird is named for its truly bizarre
giant pair of wing feathers, which can extend for over 35 centimeters (14 in). These giant, stalked feathers are actually longer than the bird’s entire body. The strange plumage accessories fly in the face of sensible aerodynamics and are therefore moulted out when they are not needed to impress females during the breeding season. The birds put on a rather spectacular group mating display and still manage to fly reasonably well despite the extra baggage. At first glance, the nightjar in flight looks like a group of three different birds.

marsupial which is only found in Australia. These dog-size creatures are famous for their loud and disturbing screech. Actually, the name "devil" just comes from its creepy sound.

But the processes are actually cruel - which makes scientists figure out using the germs in the intestine of the civets.
