That reminds me of the duck detection algorithm which I think it was Austin wrote. If it saw something yellow it detected it as a duck. In this case Austin's program would have been more successful than a giant tortoise. I bet he'd be proud.
This is making me think of that bird in Life last week, that stole a Snickers wrapper from the cameraman to incorporate into its courtship art display.
Is it me, or is that duck about to suffer a Turtle Existence Failure?
It should have paid closer attention to what history has tortoise about getting too close to wild animals.
Or perhaps to physics, whereby string theory and the Standard Muddle forbid the existence of an isolated quack.
