Yes, air travel can be quite the hassle these days, but it's tough to complain about adorable turtle-induced delays, which are currently holding up flights at JFK. This morning JetBlue tweeted: "JFK is experiencing delays as the airport clears turtles off the runway. #cantmakethisup," and indeed, you can't.
It's not the first time the little critters—diamondback terrapins, to be exact—have clogged runways at JFK.
JetBlue suggests that "maybe they wanted to hop a flight to the Caribbean to check out the finer life," but in reality, the runways are close to the turtle's natural habitat, Jamaica Bay, and are apparently something of a romantic getaway for the little guys.
