Whoa! I haven't checked this account in years, look at all the attention. Let me clrify some things.

I took this picture in Hong Kong. These turtles were harvested like any other farmed animal. The insides were removed and shell was roasted to dry. The shells were proported to be ground up and made into a jello for Chinese medicinal purposes.

I doubt any significant amount of shell actually goes into the jello. These shells were mostly for show.

I don't judge what people eat, as long as they can do it sustainably and with minimal pain. We hunt deer and bear in North America. We do many cruel things to animals. Just visit a slaughter house - poor cows and pigs.

Anyway, I justed wanted to share an interesting photo. I am glad all of you appreciated it too. Thanks for you comments. They were fun to read. :)
