Turtle Gets Wheels, Action

We love animal love stories, probably because they seem a lot simpler than human relationships. Arava, a 55-pound turtle, arrived at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo unable to move her hind legs. The zoo’s staff attached a skateboard-like device to the turtle, and with her new set of wheels, Arava has been able to move around and even began mating with a 10-year-old male turtle that’s been chasing after her. However, in this photo, it looks like Arava is chasing after him. You go, girl. [Baltimore Sun]
