Happy Turtlesday! In our ongoing effort to bring you exciting turtle footage and information each week, today's shelled star is the Chinese Soft-Shelled Turtle (inspired by this Listverse post). A truly strange creature, the Chinese soft-shelled turtle (Pelodiscus sinensis) has a 'leathery and pliable' shell which allows it to move easily in open water and in muddy depths. Also, this turtle is the only creature known to urinate from its mouth, so be grateful that neither you or your beloved dog need to do that. Unluckily for this species of turtle, it's also a delicacy to in many Asian countries, which makes them somewhat endangered.
