Myrtle the giant green sea turtle in residence at the New England Aquarium is no young tiny tot!
As a matter of fact, she's been around for about 80 years and weighs 500 pounds!
See her? She's to the right of the unidentified person's head!
She definitely resembles the little turtles most of us remember from childhood, except that she's gigantic!
She's very difficult to photograph, though, as she's in constant motion and, surprisingly, moves fairly quickly.
According to the Aquarium's website, Myrtle has been there since 1970!
She eats Brussels sprouts, cabbage and lettuce.
When Myrtle comes into view in the huge tank at the Aquarium, it's a sight one will not soon forget!
