I keep hearing that I deserve the best, but how will I know what the best is? I’m giving you a chance, against everyone’s advice, and I don’t know if it’s the best idea, but then again how will I know whether you’re the best or not if I don’t give you a chance?
This is Peanut the turtle, shortly after being found in Missouri in 1993. She was taken to to a zoo in St. Louis where the six-pack ring was removed.
It seems that she was trapped in the plastic ring as a young turtle and was unable to free herself. Subsequently her shell moulded itself to the plastic ring and she grew in the strange shape you see here.
Unfortunately the damage is permanent, but peanut is expected to live a long life and today she serves as a mascot for the fight against beach littering.
Please, always remember to clean up after yourself at the beach.
Turtles are my favorite. Please stop hurting them, because this makes me sad, okay?
i feel like that must’ve hurt her a lot her whole life :c
MY NEW TATTOO GUYSSS. Sat for about 3 hours of outlining, and I’m not quite sure if I should even get it shaded because it looks awesome as it is!
