    1/29 – another EWWWW one…Some turtles can breathe out of their butts. Turtles have an opening on their butt where feces, urine, and eggs all come out. Some water turtles, according to this Google book, have a specialized cloaca that they rely on for oxygen when they’re under water. While most turtles do not rely heavily on this kind of “butt breathing,” one kind of turtle – the Fitzroy River turtle – gets almost two-thirds of its oxygen this way
