Lager Head Turtle


The turtles being painted for the current fundraising in Naples are loggerheads, a threatened turtle that has been on the endangered list since 1978.  This turtle -- Lager Head -- was painted by
Rebecca Meland.  It sits outside Bad Ass Coffee.  


Don't blame me.  I didn't name either the turtle or the cafe.

What a pity that it's the real turtles that are endangered and not the gaudily painted ones - or the people who name things in your town.

He looks like he has quite a "bad ass" shell to carry around too.

I'm not blaming you but I can see why they named a turtle after you! Heh, heh!

Well, I like the turtle's shell and I love the name of the café.

Michelle said...

I like the turtle AND the name of the cafe :)

One of my life goals is to avoid bad coffee, so a coffee shop of that name would be enough to keep me out. Hope the art turtles brings increased awareness of the plight of the Lager Head turtle.

Is "bad ass" a compliment or a complaint?
