turtles on skateboards

Dear Emil,

Thanks for this. Turtles, using their steady slow pace, often beat hares. Here we see them also using their wits. Mighty clever of them.

We don’t think they should allowed to do this in a turtle race. We’ll put this up on the Turtle Racing page of our Races section. We’ll indicate, however, that we think it’s cheating.
