What about tossing a bucket of blood on Mitch McConnell? Can we at least agree that's OK?

If animals didn't want us to paint them, then why let us?

Yeah, it might make him stand out to a predator, but wouldnt it also make the predator not know it was a turtle?

I mean the thing DID survive in the wild until THEY took it out of the wild.

im not sayin its right, im just saying that maybe the artist thought he was helping.

I think it looks cool. What's the problem?

Seriously. Predators aren't going to think "hey, a brightly-colored turtle", they're going to think "hey, a funny rock".

Also, many animals are colorblind or have limited/different color vision. No telling what it looks like to them.

Oh give me a break.

"So far, Sheldon has received several rounds of scrubbing to remove the paint, but even if clean, it's unclear whether she'll ever be able to return to the wild --  "

Really?  Return that damn turtle back to his habitat.  He ain't hurt, he'll be just fine.  Paint or not.

CSB: There are gopher tortoises in my area (that are said to reach 100 years old) that are discovered with initials carved into their shell from 3 generations back.  I've heard of one fellow that captured a gopher with his grandfather's name carved in it.

It is ok if you spray paint "Hello DEA" on the turtle and then place  Danny Trejo's head on it

No different from putting a tattoo on an attractive woman.

Just sandblast it and toss it back. It'll be fine.

Or make soup out of it as long as you've got it just sitting there. Waste not, want not.

UtileDysfunktion: /of course, unattractive women can do whatever the hell they want

Nothing like a beast of obesity with her hair dyed a color red not found in nature and tons of ink on her sweaty, porcine body. It's like buying a rusted out gremlin and putting a bunch of JC Whitney chrome doo dads on it, and a muffler extender and pin stripes.
You still wouldn't want your friends seeing you driving it.

What could possibly be unclear about it?  You return it, unless you want to keep it as a pet.  It might live 20 years or it might get eaten tomorrow.  You didn't fail if it gets eaten tomorrow.  There isn't anything to feel bad about, even though most of us would feel bad if that happened to an animal we like to think we saved.

People in my area carve grafitti on turtle shells. I wish I was joking.

Actually I believe that painting a turtle or anything with a shell can kill it because the paint acts like shrink wrap and prevents the shell from growing. The turtles body still grows and then it slowly dies as it out grows it's shell.
