Apparently, plants can grow on turtles. It makes them look like mammal plant hybrids.
A very beautiful display of what nature can do.
Camouflage Turtle…at your service.

Nice, but is it really? Plants have roots, and where are those roots growing. It looks to me like they are growing right into the turtle’s head. How long is this turtle going to live? This worries me.
I thought of that but it seems functional enough and the size of the turtle lends weight to longevity.
I think we are looking at a rarely seen aspect of nature in the ocean but I could be wrong.

It looks natural, so I hope it is natural, and a symbiotic relationship rather than a parasitic one. But I worry…
It’s survived so far.
It has, but from some of the pictures I fear it has no idea where those roots are going. It may be a great partnership, but I have my worries.
I am curious to know how on earth those plants grow on the turtle. Thanks for the nightmares about the subject of where the plants roots are…
Sorry for the image, but grass doesn’t grow without roots, and they have to go somewhere. If the grass was growing on the shell, that might not be as worrisome, but growing on the skull, and a turtle’s skull probably not having to be as hard and thick as a human’s, reality is…Maybe the roots just grow into the blood vessels, but not through the skull. Does that help???
Oh, thanks. I should have a good sleep tonight now.
Write a story about it, or write it into your next novel. That can get it out of your head, and onto paper.
Have you read my stories?
Not yet, just discovered your blog today, and have a book to finish. Is it all historical _______, or do you do modern or science fiction too?
I haven’t done a historical novel – yet. But I have written a trilogy (which I call the Zion trilogy, which is published on “Racheal’s Novels”), which is a futuristic dystopian science fiction action-adventure trilogy.
I have also posted two short comedy skits and a dark emotional story.
I am currently writing and posting a conspiracy story.
I have considered – and am still considering – writing a historical novel, or a novel involving historical events, just not sure what.
I hope you enjoy reading my stories if you decide to do so.
My apologies. I read a few lines of a post, and it sounded like Napoleonic times, what with Nikolas II and such names.
No need to apologise as there is nothing to apologise for. I was mentioning those names to show who one of the characters descended from.
Actually, Napoleonic times would be an interesting setting for a story. Hmm…
Avoid doing it from a Russian perspective, lol. Tolstoy’s War and Peace is considered by many to be the greatest novel ever written. I am not one of those, but keeping track of all those characters could not have been easy…
I have never heard of Tolstoy’s War and Peace. What is it about? Why avoid doing it from a Russian perspective?
War and Peace is all about the Napoleonic wars from a Russian perspective. Close to 1500 pages long in some editions, it tells the sfory of the time from the Russian aristocracy viewpoint. (If you want to gain some understanding of why the Communists took over in Russia, the book will give you some clues. Russian serfs by the millions were used as cannon fodder, they were basically non-persons.) But I go too far.
Write as you like, what you like, however you like to write it. Sometimes it is better to avoid the classics, and just go with what you know…
Why just go with what you know? Where’s the fun in that?
Just a saying from back in my days of trying to become a publushed author. “Write what you know.” I don’t know how many rejection slips i got like that. I wrote peaceful endings to human-meets-alien stories. They somehow thought I should know how to write war better than I knew how to write peace stories. I never did get published, but I stayed true to myself. Wars were not an option.
Thanks for the info. I tend to write whatever and however I like.
Best way, says a never published writer, lol.
Thanks for the story idea!
