Of course you would! You’re only human!


Fossil turtles have been caught having sex, the first known case of animals with backbones found copulating in the fossil record, researchers say.

The mating turtles may have been caught in a death trap as they sank to deeper layers of the lake, where they were having sex nearly 50 million years ago, the researchers speculate. The lake’s deep layers may have held deadly volcanic gases or other toxins. [MSNBC]

Isn’t nature incredible?!
