PHUKET, THAILAND - FEBRUARY 03: Leatherback sea turtle hatchlings are illuminated by less-intrusive red light inside a bucket before getting release into the sea on February 03, 2021 in Phang Nga, Thailand. With limited tourism activities along the Andaman Coast of Thailand, and possibly with reproductive cycle of the Leatherback sea turtle (Dermochelys coriacea), these highly threatened species of sea turtle assessed as Vulnerable in the IUCN Red List are returning to nest along the sandy beach of Phang Nga and Phuket in record-breaking number with at least 17 nests, the highest number of nests recorded within one nesting season for over a decade in Thailand.

All we can think of now is Blinky the Three-Eyed Fish that Bart caught while fishing near the nuclear power plant in Springfield on The Simpsons.


Not a three-eyed fish, though. This is a two-headed diamondback terrapin turtle, and I did a double-take when it popped up in my Twitter feed: reports that the rare two-headed terrapin hatched at the Birdsey Cape Wildlife Center last month. And yes, it has six legs. And they all work. I wonder if all three of Blinky’s eyes worked?
