Reptiles in the Donaukanal

Posted on:June 01 2006

The Donaukanal is a river which flows through the middle of the city of Vienna. When we were walking next to it, we were a bit surprised when we noticed a huge reptile bathing in the sun at the bank of the canal. Luckily I had my camera with me:
After I took that picture, I slowly approached that thing. It was quite big (as not very recognizable on the pic) and - unbelievable - fast! It immediatly jumped into the water like a lightning bolt and disappeard instantly. Truely a Donalkanal-Ninja-Turtle.

When I was in Hawaii we went scuba diving in a location known for its giant turtles. They are really really really fast underwater I had a lot of trouble keeping up with them and I am a really good swimmer and I have a nice set of fins.

They were pretty big as well the shells were about three feet long.
