Basking turtles

Our volunteers have been enjoying spending time by the river observing and recording behaviour of basking turtles in the Mary. Krefft’s turtle, white throated snapping turtle and Mary River turtle all bask together on the same rock or log. Yesterday we observed a female Mary River turtle basking on top of the shell of a larger female white throated snapping turtle. The white throated appeared quite unperturbed. The Mary River turtle could not maintain her balance once the white throated turtle started to walk along the log.
