Everybody Loves Turtles

This week marks one of the biggest holidays in the world. No, it’s not Memorial Day for you Yankees out there. Nor is it National Escargot Day for the French. It’s National Turtle Day!

I thought I’d give it a s-hell of a celebration by posting some of my favorite turtle encounters underwater captioned by the incomparable Crush from Finding Nemo. So there’s only one question left: “Do you have your exit buddy?”

                             "First you were like WHOA! Then we were like WHOA! and then you were like ..whoa.."

                                              "RIGHTEOUS! RIGHTEOUS!"

                                                        How old are you?

                              "Hundred and fifty, and still young, dude. Rock on."

                              "Oh, man. Hey, no hurling on the shell, dude, ok? Just waxed it."

                           "Oh, man. Hey, no hurling on the shell, dude, ok? Just waxed it."

                           "Grab shell, dude!"

                                                                               "Gimme some fin. Noggin. Dude!"

                                                                             "Gimme some fin. Noggin. Dude!"

                                        "Dude, Mister Turtle is my father. Name's Crush."

Happy International Turtle Day 2014. For more info on endangered turtle species like the Hawksbill and Green Turtles pictured above, visit the Endangered Species website
