(Daily Mail)   Turtle being squeezed to death by anaconda is saved by his shell. Subby hasn't seen a turtle this threatened by an anaconda since Sir Mix-A-Lot had Raphael bound and gagged in the basement   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 33

Thankfully, it was soon discovered that Raph didn't have no motor in the back of his Honda, so he was safe.

So, he pretty much made the snake go without food? How would you like it if someone took a steak from your mouth?!

Should not have gotten involved. Everyone needs to eat.

Did this really happen?

But the courageous turtle managed to survive the struggle for several minutes before French photographer, Jean-Michel Labat, helped it to escape.

I thought you were supposed to let nature take it's course as a wildlife photographer? Holy shiat, that lion is about to take down a fuzzy zebra, fire at will! All animals have to eat, guess Pepe le Pew doesn't understand this.

/Yeah, lonely.

Miller might last. Maher? Dead out of the gate.

Turtle fought for its life

And by fought for its life, they mean it sat there and waited for the snake to give up.

Would you really call your brethren that fast?

Also, Jean-Michel Labat sounds like a dick.

The cow usually isn't still breathing at that point.

I think even if the snake had won that would have been one hell of a turd to push out after having a serious case of indigestion.

Imagine that: protective thingy protects.

Stop the presses.

so the dirty frog deprived the poor snake of its breakfast

I wonder how a 20 foot Anaconda would make out with some of the larger snapping turtles. I have a suspicion that we might end up with 2 10-foot snakes.
 
2012-11-02 07:59:50 AM
I want to know what he did to help the turtle since it looks like a very large snake...and no aftermath pictures? Did he hack the snake to bits?

/hates snakes

Isn't the whole point of a turtle's shell to protect it from predators? Why is it suddenly news when that works? Look out, Daily Mail, you're going to get scooped on that big "fire is hot" story.

Also FTFA "I found it all fascinating to watch at first but then I realised it was going to end badly for the turtle and I had to step in". Did he think the huge constricting snake was giving his 'lil turtle buddy a hug?

There was less torture involved at Abu Ghraib than there was in making this headline.
 
2012-11-02 09:15:58 AM
I want to know how he persuaded the anaconda to let go. I don't disapprove, I'd choose a turtle or tortoise over a snake any day, but something got glossed over.
 
2012-11-02 09:53:52 AM
Don't squeeze me, bro!
 
2012-11-02 09:54:09 AM
Stupid photographer. Let nature take its course.

That type of turtle would not drown before the anaconda, and as long as the shell didn't crack right away the turtle was in little danger. Even turtles know Defense wins championships!

/I've seen tortoises chewed on by lions until the shell breaks, and still survive

Must've been a terrapinning situation for the turtle.

Points for effort, but damn that was a stretch...

Came in here to say that for a "Wildlife Photographer" he sure doesn't know much about water animals. Hint: Turtles sleep on the bed of the river, not on top, though they do like to stand on their toes and poke their noses out for some reason. Turtle could have ridden it out underwater for days.

On the other hand, some Anacondas have nearly a thousand pounds of crushing power, enough to splinter that shell. It might be tough, but that's as much as a truck tire rolling over, and lots of turtles die that way.

Maybe we're misinterpreting this situation. It could be a simple case of constrictor-chelonian love, the kind that results in this:

My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns hun.
