Enormous 1500 POUND Leatherback Turtle Gets Lifted By Crane Off Barcelona Beach

Lift Off: Turtle Edition

When I was little, my dad got me a miniature baby turtle.

If I hadn’t been so irresponsible maybe it would’ve grown into this 1500 pound monster that washed up on a Barcelona beach.

Though the 6 foot leatherback gigantor was dead, there’s still probably thousands of these giant turtles coasting through the ocean.

Can you imagine snorkeling around on vacation, minding your own business, and one of these creeped up behind you?
