Fossilized Copulating Turtle Couple Discovered In Germany

These shell backed lovers were fossilized while doing the nasty around 47 million years ago, and now have the distinction of being the only vertebrate fossils ever found frozen in the act of making love.

The mating couple were found in a German quarry called the Messel Pit, where five more pairs of copulating turtle couples were found, making this site the new home for paleontologist jokes and one liners about mating turtles.

Anybody have a good turtle joke they'd like to share?

No jokes, but turtles / tortoises are very horny little buggers. Seems like half the time I see them they're making baby turtles. Hell, I even saw one at one time that had put food on the back of the bottom turtle's shell so he could get a snack while having sex.
