'Genital breathing' Australian turtle faces extinction, scientists warn.

And so it should, the punk-haired little pervert.

A punk turtle with a green mohican and highly unconventional lifestyle is the star attraction in a new list of endangered reptiles.

The Mary River turtle (Elusor macrurus) has a head crowned by vertical strands of algae that also grow on its body. In addition, it sports face furniture in the form of long fleshy barbels under its chin.

However, perhaps the Mary River turtle's most unusual feature is its ability to breath through its genitals.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
