The Elseya irwini is an interesting new turtle discovered by Steve Irwin and his father and named after them.
Apart from being on the endangered list it’s one major claim to fame is that it can breathe underwater through it’s backside.
Personally I’d have thought being able to breathe thru it’s backside would place it in a different genus to the one chosen since it might be linked more closely with something that talks thru it’s backside.
Maybe it’s name should have been Elseya Howardii ??
