Turtle Derby 2009

My ten turtles race off in what is undoubtedly the highlight of the global sporting calendar. Maybe. Or else it’s just me having a little fun doing a video of them wandering around the patio for a few minutes. Recorded for posterity. Some would even go so far to say that the Turtle Derby has nothing in common with the athletics world at all, but that would in fact be an erroneous opinion. The gender of many of the participants of this race is disputed. Male? Female? Who knows. I wonder if there has ever been a hermaphrodite turtle? By the way, the eldest two of my turtles just turned four. Imagine! Animals in my care surviving beyond a few months was once considered a miracle.
