The Case of the Curious Sea Turtle

Would it be a stretch to suggest that sea turtles are the owls of the ocean? They stand apart from other creatures, seem to possess an ancient knowledge, and glide through their environment with grace and a sense of mystery.

Except this sea turtle. This guy (or gal) abandons all of the aloof self-possession you might expect from a turtle and instead visits a commercial diver in the Gulf of Thailand with the curiosity of a dog or cat. Make that a dog — it takes an exploratory nibble at the diver’s suit.

The vid’s paced a little slow — we’re talking turtle speed, after all — but is a charming little escape well worth a few minutes of your day.
