Turtle island

As I have said many times before, the turtle is one of my favorite animals. I had them as pets and over the years I’ve really grown to love sea turtles. My kids can tell you how much I like turtles by pointing to my collection of turtles.

Anyway, when I came across this article, “Origin of the Unique Ventilatory Apparatus of Turtles: How the Tortoise’s ribs got embedded in it’s Shell” at the University of the Witwatersrand, I knew I had to post it.

Enjoy!
