Main Question or Discussion Point

A turtle that was involved in the drugs trade has been given a new crime-free life at the New England Aquarium in Boston, USA.

Fluffy, a 45 lb Alligator snapping turtle (Macrochelys temminckii), was previously a "guard" for a New York drug dealer, who used the turtle to protect his stash of illegal drugs. [continued]

Now that the turtle is living in a safe environment, he is really coming out of his shell.

The first test of whether or not an article belongs in "The Turnip" is whether it's true or not. This story just doesn't meet the high standards of "The Turnip".

The dealer does hard time, and the turtle gets away scot free?

:rofl: They didn't tell you it's the maximum security exhibit.

I'm laughing hardest that the turtle was named "Fluffy" -- a snapping turtle no less. :rofl:
