An Alert Reader named Lindarama http://www.stumbleupon.com/stumbler/Lindarama/
contacted me last night and I made a comment below that I thought she may have been a scientist.
She not only knew the scientific names of the turtles, she knew which one was the dude, too.
She is a scientist. A Marine Biologist with a PHD !
The smaller turtle is the dude. The one that ran for beer must have been a gal. I just kid around; don't think turtles really drink beer. But, I know snails and my dogs do. It kills snails.
Anyhow, if you want to do me a favor, say "Hi" to Lindarama over at the Stumble Channel or visit her awesome website http://www.kashgar.com.au/articles. She has some interesting articles and collectibles over there. So, I gave her a Thumbs Up and am going back to read some more.
