Mary River turtle (The Green Hair Turtle)

The Mary River turtle, Elusor macrurus, is an endangered short-necked turtle that inhabits the Ma River in South-East Queensland, Australia.
In the 1960s and 1970s, they were popular as pets in Australia, with about 15,000 sent to shops every year during a ten-year period.
They were originally known as the "Penny Turtle"
or "Pet Shop Turtle".
Hatchlings have a straight carapace length of 2–3.5 cm.
