Ninja Turtles Testudo mutanto
Teenage mutant ninja turtles – how did these creatures come about? Do they follow the path of Darwin or is it something more? What really was in the ooze that transformed them from simple turtles roaming the sewers to superhuman beings? Is it a cry for help from Mother Nature or is it simply our fault? I would have to suggest the latter. Certainly with all the chemicals we are dumping into the world’s waterways, it seems like a natural progression. We have mercury-contaminated fish and now crime fighting turtles. When will it end? Water is our most precious resource. This is a wake up call for action. I suppose we are lucky this time. After all, testudo mutanto is on our side. However, the mercury-laden fish are not. It is only a matter of time until the scales are tipped in the wrong direction.
