Cute story right?
Well today, as I was walking by the turtle tank while burping North, I saw him assuming a pretty dirty position in his glass swimming dish. That's where he poops. I saw a strange thing emerge from the area I assumed was his butt, thinking maybe that was turtle poop coming out. But the thing kept coming and I realized it was purple. Turtle poop is green, not purple.
"Geeez uhz!" I thought while turning North's innocent eyes away. It was Gollum's winky woo!
Here is what it looks like, if you dare! Yes, this means I googled "turtle penis".
I became worried that Gollum was lonely. Perhaps even made more lonely by the fact that we bought him a half-size stone turtle that sits in the corner of his tank. He mounts it occasionally. But no, the display I witnessed is just normal turtle behavior. Sounds hygienic according to this excerpt from Darren Naish's article "Terrifying sex organs of male turtles".
Now I ask you. Aren't you glad you visited my blog today?
