Such a cute turtle!

Did you know
…some species of turtle are remarkably resistant to centrifugal force, and can reach upwards of 5000 rpm before their wee little flippers fall off? <link>

These are some of the cutest animals that I’ve ever seen!


The last turtle I ran into (er…not literally…) was trying to cross a busy road. It was in the center of the lane, all tucked into it’s shell - obviously scared out of it’s mind by all the cars running over/around it. I stopped my car, picked it up, carried it to the swamp adjacent and got peed on.

But it was still cute!
