Turtles are great. It's sad so many are being killed by BP's oil down in the Gulf.

UPDATE: My girlfriend has pointed out that "tortoises are not turtles". I stand humbly corrected :), though I will say in my defense that I know the tortoises, or turtles, or whatever they are in the video are not the same kind being smothered in BP's oil.
