Turtle Sex Causes Massive Delay at JFK Airport

While the horseshoe crab orgy is just a fun and cute animal affair, the turtles from Jamaica Bay are a different story. A group of 78 swinging diamondback terrapins held up one of the most busy runways at JFK on Wednesday. It took authorities half an hour to get the turtles off the runway.
He said that the turtles were perhaps attracted to the sand along one side of the runway, which juts into the water. "They tend to look for sand while they are mating," he said. "Presumably, all these turtles were feeling amorous." It is unclear whether the turtles pair off, or if the numbers indicated it was a group activity, he said.

Some of the delays lasted up to an hour and a half -but hey, at least the turtles got their sexy on, which is a much better excuse for a delayed flight than most of the ones we hear.
