May 28, 2007: Soft-shelled turtle found



It's the Monday Neatorama collaboration image!



And what a find Alex of Neato has found today; this Discovery Channel story says:

Quote:
A rare soft-shell turtle thought to be on the brink of extinction has been discovered in Cambodia in a former stronghold of the Khmer Rouge, conservationists said Wednesday.

A 24-pound female Cantor's giant turtle -- known for its rubbery skin and jaws powerful enough to crush bone -- was captured and released by researchers in March, U.S.-based Conservation International and World Wildlife Fund said in a statement.

Scientists from the two groups and Cambodian wildlife officials discovered the animal and a nesting ground during a survey in Cambodia's Mekong River region.

"We thought it might be almost gone, but found it in abundance in this one pristine stretch of the Mekong, making the area the world's most important site for saving this particular species," David Emmett, a CI wildlife biologist, said in the statement.
Be sure to visit our friends at Neatorama for more neato items all the time!

Thank you. I thought I was the only one thinking of that.

As for the obligatory kill and eat, hmm, since it's Asian I'd say seasoned with five spice powder, wrapped in banana leaves and steamed. Served with rice noodles and hot pepper oil on the side.

Remember this thing is big enough and powerful enough to take off a toe, or maybe a foot, yet flat enough to fit under the couch. IOtD eats Dweller.

ROFL! You guys are so weird...



xoxoxoBruce  Monday May 28 03:11 PM

Hey now, we represent that!

Hmmm, sounds good.

I might try a turtle curry (the recipe uses chicken, but states: "Note : This dish originally used turtle meat").

Yep, and there's even a line on a supplier. Which is good, because you never know if the SPCA is going to be closed.

Aw. The recipe is Indonesian. One of my favorite places.

If this is Cantor's turtle, is it a fractal turtle or does it just mean that what looks like sand in the picture is actually Cantor Dust?



rkzenrage  Tuesday May 29 06:24 PM

Down here in FL we fry softshells.

It's the turtle belonging to this Cantor. See - it looks like it's just finished makin' whoopee.


Elspode  Tuesday May 29 10:57 PM

It looks like an inflatable soft shelled turtle to me.



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday May 30 04:23 AM

It just came out of the water... that's shrinkage.



smurfalicious  Wednesday May 30 10:25 AM

I just wish the picture included its Cantor-buried Tail.
