    Air traffic disrupted by over 150 turtles trying to find a place to lay their eggs

    More than 150 turtles crossed over an active runway and disrupted air traffic on Wednesday so that they could continue their mating season. The diamondback terrapins were trying to get to an ideal location to lay their eggs. That's a sandy area that happens to be across Runway 4, according to Carol Bannerman of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The turtles were primarily female, and the fertilization of their eggs occurs in the water, she said.

    The whole earth is held in place by a giant tortoise. It should be little wonder then that a turtle can hold up a jet.
