Toopid turtle! Twacks are for twains!

Florida has what has to be the dumbest turtles in the world. I had written about them before, but here's proof.
The turtles can figure out how to get over one rail of the tracks, but cant figure out how to get over the second rail and eventually die between the rails. If you click on the photo above you'll see the obviously old (and very dead) ex~turtle. There's literally hundreds I see every day like this.
Just another in a long list of crazy things I see every day!

You could start a side job selling the shells. Just start collecting them and paint some design on it. People buy the stupidest things, so I am sure you would make a killing.

Poor things. I hate to see road kill.

Reba is right! My MIL would TOTALLY buy it -- especially if it was at a garage sale!

NC has a similar problem- only it's people!

It took me a minute, but I found the old turtle. Sad. Where is Florida's Society for the Protection of Reptiles?

I hope the person who took the picture didn't get run over by the train. Hopefully they're a bit smarter than the turtle.

Poor stupid turtles. I wonder why they can't climb over the second rail?
