Turtles & dinosaurs

As I’ve said many times, turtles have always been one of my favorite animals. So what do turtles and dinosaurs have in common? Well, according to this article, “Alligator Snapping Turtles, the Dinosaurs of the Turtle World, Are Actually 3 At-Risk Species” by John R. Platt, snapping turtles have been around for millions of years.

That would explain how they’ve actually been able to morph into three  individual species. Taking a look at them, they definitely looks like something from another time. Gotta love ’em.
