每日英語跟讀 Ep.K314: About Animals - 2-headed baby turtle thrives at Massachusetts animal refuge

A rare two-headed diamondback terrapin turtle is alive and kicking, with all six of its legs, at the Birdsey Cape Wildlife Center in Massachusetts.

一隻罕見的雙頭菱背水龜還活著,用它的六條腿在馬薩諸塞州的伯德西角野生動物中心踢球。

A threatened species, this turtle is feeding well on blood worms and food pellets. The two heads operate independently, coming up for air at different times, and inside its shell are two gastrointestinal systems to feed both sides of its body.

作為一種受威脅的物種,這種以血蟲和食物顆粒為食。兩個頭部獨立運作,在不同時間上來呼吸空氣,其外殼內有兩個胃腸道系統,為身體的兩側提供食物。

The turtle originally came from a nest in West Barnstable that researchers determined was in a hazardous location and needed to be moved. After hatching, turtles are sent to different care centers to be monitored before their release in the spring.

這隻最初來自西巴恩斯特布爾的一個巢穴,研究人員確定該巢穴位於危險地點,需要移動。孵化后,海龜被送往不同的護理中心進行監測,然後在春季釋放。

The two heads are nicknamed Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen after the twin child stars.

這兩位頭像被昵稱為Mary-Kate和Ashley Olsen,以雙胞胎童星的名字命名。

野生動物官員週二表示,一隻黑熊媽媽和三隻幼崽爬上一棵樹,在弗吉尼亞州的一個社區中間打盹,幾個小時后自願漫步。

這四隻黑熊在週一午夜左右離開了他們在切薩皮克市恰如其分地命名為Bruin Drive的高聳棲息處。

Officials had asked residents near the tree to stay inside and blocked off the road from outside visitors in order to give the bears “space, quiet, and time.”

官員們要求樹附近的居民留在裡面,並封鎖了外面遊客的道路,以便給熊"空間,安靜和時間"。

Police were first alerted to the bears about 2 a.m. Monday, The Virginian-Pilot reported.
