The service at this resort is abominable!

[turtle waiter crawls up to patron, on beach in the south of France]

Waiter:
Monsieur, may I get you a cocktail?

Hold yer horses

Monsieur Beachgoer: FINALLY, a garçon! [Snaps fingers and adjusts Ray-Bans] Yes, I'd like a Mai Tai.

With extra tai.

Rule 14 anyone?

Right away, Monsieur. [shuffles off to zee bar]

To zee bar!

Carin C., That is a sweet speed hump on that shell. Someone call Detroit auto manufacturererers!

I just noticed the minuscule patterns on his/her shell. Now I'm even dedder than before.

SarahP

It's a trifecta! Teeny tailio, eye capsules, and an everyday object making him look tiny! Also, I think he might fit the rule "If you have 4 legs and can tuck yourself in, it's cute." He can certainly tuck himself into his shell!!

"Excuse me sir, I ordered a Pino Colada and got a Mai Tai. And I specifically said no salt, NO salt. I couls shut this place down. I call... continues mumbling. I burn this place down."

uhm. at the risk of sounding like nemo's dad, does anyone know how long river turtles live? didn't the surfer turtle dude in finding nemo say sea turtles live to be 180 years old? how big do they get, i wonder? we've got lots of river turtles, if that's what they's called, in the river here in kentucky, and i was just wonderin.

Anyone else just wanna pick him up and place him gently at the water's edge?

Kar
 |  Jun 04, 2007 at 09:18 AM

Isn't the turtle supposed to be going toward the water?

Suzy's Mom
 |  Jun 04, 2007 at 09:20 AM

do you have any idea how COLD that water is??!!

Theo
 |  Jun 04, 2007 at 09:23 AM

Umm, RumTumTigger...

D'ya mean snapping turtles? I understand they, too get quite old, and can get as big as truck tires! I grew up on the Ohio here in Cloverport, Kentucky, and have seen these snappers big enough to cause nightmares.....

I hope you did not get tooo close in the state of Florida you could have been thrown in jail for 90 days for getting that close to a turtle

I think Mr. Turtle-waitron is lamenting that nobody just orders a shot of tequila, which would be much easier for him to transport.

Actually, this little turtle appears to be a Diamondback Terrapin. They are one of the few species of turtle that lives in brackish (part salt, part fresh) water. I suspect this pic was taken somewhere near Chesapeake Bay?

(And having seen a couple of hatchling DB Terps up close, I can assure you: Yes, they *are* that adorable!)

As far as ages: Most turtles live a very *long* time. Box turtles have been documented living to at least 50; some tortoises have been documented to well over 100.
(I'll stop here, although I could go on and on and on about turtles and torts.... when *did* I fall over that line between hobby and obsession, anyway?)

o-m-g wow. I thought this was a normal-ish sized turtle from the first pic, then the second picture put it all in perspective! Squee!

Tiny Turtle! *in singsong voice* I love it!

I loooove the second picture! He seems to be looking at the human foot like, "Eef only I were bigger, I could make a snack of those toesies!"

 |  Jun 04, 2007 at 10:22 AM

I am in loff! In photo 1 he has his "whee!" face on, and in photo 3, his little feetsies aren't even touching the sand! The little shadow under his left foot is visible...I can practically hear him going "ehn ehn ehn!" across the beach. Oh how I loff him so.

Wook at the wittle turtle-wurtle! I love baby turtles :)

This reminds me, however, that I could have gone on a trip to Costa Rica this month and helped biologist and the ilk down there cover nests, etc. on the beaches. I turned it down for a long-planned family trip to Europe to visit family. A trip that got canceled. Sigh.

 |  Jun 04, 2007 at 10:38 AM

I don't think this guy is actually a sea turtle! Look at his legs...they are definitely NOT flippers. It's a good thing he is moving AWAY from the water!

LOL, Heather! (I have a red Swingline stapler at my desk. Honest.)

soooo, I took these pics this past Sunday at Robert Moses State Park on Long Island. Just for FYI and all. I was walking down the beach and I look down AND there's a TURTLE. Glad you like.

Carin

I don't know about a Mai Tai, but perhaps he could manage an olive.

that turtle must make it to the ocean and set itself free
