This is an endangered Mary River turtle, endemic to Australia's Mary River. This species' nesting ground will be destroyed once a dam is constructed. The turtles are aided in their hunting behavior by cloacal sacs through which they can take oxygen from the water, allowing them to remain submerged far longer than other turtles. This physiological adaptation however only works in shallow, oxygen rich waters, not in dams.
