No Scan Do

They're Coming Out Of Their Shell

An animal lover was so fed up with looking for her tortoises she has fitted them with a tracker device. Jane Williams, who runs a tortoise sanctuary from her home in Colchester, uses a handheld scanner to hunt down her 60 animals. The tracker device is attached to their shells with a removable sticky pad. Ms Williams said, "Contrary to popular belief, tortoises can actually move quite fast. They are real escape artists. They can climb walls, hide in bushes and bury themselves.''

Climb wall, hide in bushes and bury themselves?

That's kick ass . . . add faster than expect speeds and you have yourself a superhero in the making.

Ninja Turtle?
