This link doesn't say anything about it, but iirc this is the turtle that was found to have a cyst growing on or near his genitals, and only once that cyst was removed did he start showing himself interested in the females.
Is that right, TevarTahalshia? If so, that's interesting. I wasn't able to find any information about it myself (although amusingly, I did
discover that entering "'Lonesome George' cyst" into Google
yields this very thread as its second result). Is it possible that you're thinking of Henry the tuatara, who I mentioned in this thread
? He had a cancerous tumor removed from his "nether regions" and subsequently he got very funky indeed.
By the way, here's another neat picture of Lonesome George:
I'm glad that you enjoyed the story, everyone! Thanks for the replies!Spel
They fixed up Henry's junkie...
