Sometimes dreams do come true, like the time that I wrote about Ernie “The Turtleman” Brown Jr. and he came to our office and hung out and visited with us all day. The Turtleman, if you’re unfamiliar, is the host and star of “Call of the Wildman,” an awesome show on Animal Planet. In it, The Turtleman traps all manner of wild animals and safely removes them from people’s yards, houses and swamps (some people have swamps). His catchphrase is “Live action!” which he will shout at you with a joy and exuberance most of us reserve for our favorite bands or gifts under the tree on Christmas morning. Not Turtleman. He lives every day like this, and watching him catch possums, or remove snakes, is totally entertaining!

We talked to The Turtleman about turtles, life in his native Kentucky, and asked him for dating and relationship advice. Because, we figured, chasing turtles all those years is bound to teach you a thing or two. See what he had to say, after the jump!

Hi, My name is Julie and I’m a Turtleman-a-holic. I’ve just spent the last three hours watching Animal Planet’s “Call of the Wildman,” and I am hooked. The show follows “The Turtleman” Ernie Brown Jr., a middle-aged guy who lives with his mom and spends his days rooting out wild animals from his friends’ and neighbors’ properties. His specialty is snapping turtles, but he will also help capture and release possums, raccoons and snakes. On one recent episode, The Turtleman humanely removed a large family of rats from a house using peanut butter sandwiches and mint (rats love peanut butter sandwiches but hate the smell of mint — who knew!?). Turtleman has a catch phrase — “live action” — and a posse, the Turtle Crew, who help him capture and save the animals. So yes, basically, we’re in love. [Animal Planet]

New YouTube Trend: Turtles Humping Shoes


I know you woke up this morning and thought to yourself, “What new thing about the world will I discover today?” Well, I’ve got something for ya. It has been brought to my attention that turtles are actually quite fond of shoes and their owners are quite fond of taking videos of said fondness and posting it on YouTube. Yes, turtles have shoe fetishes. Above, watch a turtle get jiggy with some sexy Crocs. I hardly know what to say. Maybe slow and steady really does win the race? Check out more after the jump… [BuzzFeed]

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] Keep reading »

The Daily Squeeze: Sexless Turtles, Women’s Viagra, and Obvious Sex Statistics

If testing goes well, women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder will be able to rub a dab of LibiGel onto her upper arm, and for 24 hours, she’ll get an energy and libido boost. LibiGel all around! [ABC]
  • New Jersey men have more sex than New Jersey women. And they’re not having sex as often as they’d like — but 68 percent said they had sex in the past year, so at least they have that going for them. [Newsday]
