Enigmatic Elusor - these turtles (Elusor macrurus) are apparently endangered, might as well make them popular while there is still time!

I like Emerald Emydura!

Emerald goes well with Crystal (and is setting up for a nice early 2000s Pokemon trend).

I also want to propose Eager Emydura.

How about ROS 2.2? There are not going to be many turtles left to name the releases after.

Eager Eretmochelys, short name “eager”, really short name ROS2e

ea·ger /ˈēɡər/ adjective
(of a person) wanting to do very much.
(of a person’s expression or tone of voice) characterized by keen expectancy or interest.

Eretmochelys - hawksbill sea turtle is a small & agile turtle. Lays an amazing 60 to 200 eggs every nesting season. Omnivorous with narrow pointed beak which is a specialized feeding tool, much like a bird of prey. Beautiful gold and brown patterned shells. Part of Japanese culture for 300 years. A single hawksbill can eat 1,200 sponges a year, helping maintain the coral reefs as the sponges compete with coral so Eretmochelys is a hero and beautiful too!

Oh and is first biofluorescent reptile ever recorded. It glows in the dark!
