Lizard Rescued From Child's Salad.
It seems like one of the biggest lunchtime nightmares. You've taken your wrapped salad out of the refrigerator, sit down to eat it, and find a three-inch lizard, frozen stiff upon the bed of lettuce. Most would probably scream, flip their salad over, and hunt down someone bigger and stronger to help them deal with it. However, when this exact scenario happened to Faye Mabon, a kindergartner at Riverside Elementary School, something very different occurred. She saved its life! Meet Green Fruit Loop, the official pet and mascot of Riverside Elementary teacher Mark Eastburn's science class. When Faye found the lizard, she alerted the science teacher, who then found that the lizard wasn't dead at all, but simply appearing lifeless from the refrigerator's extreme cold. Mark identified Green Fruit Loop as a baby Carolina anole lizard, a species native to the Northeast that has the ability to camouflage into its environment, which is how he speculates is how the lizard was able to sneak into the food undetected. Now sufficiently incubated and back to full health, Green Fruit Loop gets plenty of attention from Riverside Elementary students AND faculty. Mark was also able to create a whole lesson around the lizard - as the Carolina anole was the very first reptile to have its DNA genome sequenced. So the next time you see a creepy-crawly somewhere unexpected, don't be scared. Just scoop it up and find a way to donate it... FOR SCIENCE!!! So would you have thought to rescue the lizard, or would you get rid of it as fast as possible?

Police Arrest Man With 51 Live Turtles In His Pants
A Canadian man plead guilty in Michigan federal court earlier this week after being tried for smuggling dozens of live turtles across the US-Canadian border - in his pants. Kai Xu, a 27-year-old University of Waterloo student, was stopped by the Canada Border Services Agency as he attempted to make his way into Ontario last August. According to court documents, Xu was stopped when an active officer "noticed irregularly shaped bulges under Xu’s sweatpants on both his legs." It was then when authorities found 41 live snapping turtles strapped to his legs and an extra 10 secured between his thighs. (Which is a little too close for comfort, if you ask me.) Among the 51 turtles confiscated, the agency was able to find several North American varieties, including eastern box turtles, red-eared sliders, and diamondback terrapins - many of which sell for as much as $800 each. Allegedly, Xu would routinely order these turtles online, ship them to America, cross the border to pick them up, and then ship them within Canada and overseas to China. As it's currently illegal to export wildlife from the United States, Xu could serve up to 10 years in prison for his crime. The turtles remain in government possession, and so far, reports have yet to detail what will happen to them next. I, however, hope that they are inspired by the fight for justice and dedicate the rest of their lives to taking down bad guys with impressive ninja-like agility. (Yes, all 51 of them.) What do you guys think? Does Xu deserve 10 years in prison? Do the turtles deserve a group trip to Disney World? Let me know in the comments below, and feel free to follow my WTF Street Journal collection for some more really weird stuff.
