(THE GIST) — An alligator snapper turtle, living near the Chinese town of Changchun, is so incredibly slow, you wouldn’t believe it. Possibly because it smokes about 10 cigarettes a day.

The nicotine-addicted turtle — whom just about any non-smoking human could beat in a footrace due in part to the reduced vitality of its lungs — becomes agitated and starts to hiss when it needs a cigarette. Classic smoker behavior!

The pathetically-slow repitile became addicted the way that most people do, because its handler placed a lit cigarette in its mouth to distract it while while removing a sharp chicken bone from its soft belly. via http://thegist.com/news/1270/turtle-who-smokes-half-pack-of-cigarettes-a-day-really-pathetic-at-running
