The Mary River Turtle (Elusor macrurus)was only described by scientists in 1994 from the Mary River in the hinterland north of the Brisbane region. The Mary River Turtle species were sold in pet shops in the 80's as ‘penny turtles’. It was through these that the species came to the attention of Sydney turtle researcher John Cann. It took John more than 20 years to trace the baby turtles to the Mary River.
