Giant Sea Turtle Returns to Texas

Glenn Reynolds writes:

ENVIRONMENTAL GOOD NEWS: Leatherback turtles return to Texas. “For the first time since the 1930’s, federal biologists confirmed that a leatherback sea turtle has nested on a Texas beach, at the Padre Island National Seashore near Corpus Christi. . . . The giant, ancient, endangered turtles, some the size of a Smart Car, have until now only been known to nest in four spots in the United States – with about three dozen females a year laying eggs on beaches along the east coast of Florida and slightly larger nesting populations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.”

But are they good to eat?

  1. Goddamn that’s a big turtle. A lot of soup.

  2. awww that is so harsh. how on earth can you think of such a thing like that being eaten??……well heres the answer. you cant. im only 12 but i know a lot about endangered animals and if you want them round for longer then stop treating them like there is hundreds and thousands of them in this world. imagine if you were that huge creature and someone shot you because you tasted nice.

  3. this picture is so cool!! how big are they because they look huge!!

  4. u r a mean mean mean man u should not be mean to turtles turtles rule ever eat a turtle again and my turtle will eat u

  5. we are studying endangered species in my science class.
    and i agree. turtles should be left alone.
    they have lived this long. they should live longer.
    also manatees. you need to buy boats with high frequency insteead of low so the manatees can get out of the way

  6. LEAVE THE TURTLES ALONE!HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF YOU WERE TREATED JUST AS BAD?!

  7. why the hell would people eat turtles, I mean it’s like eating a dog or cat yuck.

  8. i caNT STAND THE THOUGHT OF SOMEONE KILLING SUCH A MAJESTIC CREATURE LIKE THIS.

  9. I agree with billy,I am only eleven but i think that all animals should be treated well.Im no vegetarian but still….

  10. Eating a turtle is absolutely nothing like eating a dog or cat. I agree not to eat them, but really? A dog and cat?

  11. im only 2 years old and i know that turtles taste really good when deep fried so we should kill them all

  12. I love me some bbq seaturtle, with a hint of panda liver and blue whale caviar on the side., its good see these delicious beasts are close to home again, I can wait to catch one.

  13. I’m not even 1 year old yet and I think that boy in the picture might be eaten by that turtle. His parents should be incarcerated by child services. Just imagine if you were that boy and you were being eaten (one piece at a time) by that humungus turtle, how would you feel? And then, to think that you parents were being arrested by Child Services would be sad too! Just imagine how cruel this world is … and I’m not even one year old yet!

  14. I’m not even born yet and what is this?

  15. wow that is so so so so so mean what if you were treated that way! my pet is scared so i would JUST LEAVE IT ALONE OK!
