Hmmm... I dunno Eben, your experience seems a little out there on the spectrum of marine life interactions. I can see spearing fish and grabbing lobster, but turtle fondling?SurfLung wrote: ↑Mon Apr 16, 2018 10:18 amHere's a kind of funny story along those lines. Vacationing in Maui, I was trying to get a video of my nephew swimming alongside a Sea Turtle. I kept telling him to get closer. Finally on the surface he asked me "Gee how close do you mean?" And I said, "swim up to him and put your hand on the back of his shell". He gave me a horrified look but he agreed to do it. Later when we were watching the video, he said, "Uncle Eben made me touch the turtle." We all laughed but these young people are getting some seriously weird indoctrination. I told him, "Think about this: If your hands are poisonous to touch animals, wouldn't your two baby girls also be poisoned when you touch them?" He got it.
