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.
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.
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.
The two heads are nicknamed Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen after the twin child stars.
Mama bear, 3 cubs climb tree, take nap in urban Virginia 熊媽媽和3隻熊寶寶在維吉尼亞州市區打瞌睡
A mama black bear and three cubs clambered up a tree and napped in the middle of a Virginia neighborhood before voluntarily ambling on hours later, wildlife officials said Tuesday.
The four black bears left their lofty perch on aptly named Bruin Drive in the city of Chesapeake around midnight Monday.
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.”
Police were first alerted to the bears about 2 a.m. Monday, The Virginian-Pilot reported.
據弗吉尼亞飛行員報導，警方首先在周一淩晨2點左右接到熊警報。Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1496812 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1493306
