I have been severely traumatized by being flashed by the turtle. Went downstairs to take the dog outside, saw that the turtle was doing what looked like downward dog yoga pose, and was terrified by the sight of a purplish-black, vaguely flower-shaped object dangling below his tail. I yelled for mom, ran to the foot of the stairs, and cried, "I think Vincenzo's lost one of his organs!"
I was right.... sort of.... Spring, it seems, has come to Vincenzo's tank. And it was a very, very scary sight.
