    Sure....but how many cubits in a rod? Stone in a metric ton? Litres in a cubic mile? And how much can an African swallow REALLY carry?

    And you bought all of the bad karma and legal trouble right there. Seriously that's the sleaziest and stupidest thing I can imagine. Hope you enjoy the deal.

    I hope for the OP’s sake that law enforcement is unaware of this forum. It’s just bad karma to buy something like that. Especially from a sketchy person. It has to have been stolen. If I were the OP, I certainly wouldn’t be posting what I did on the internet. I wouldn’t own it, personally.

    I cant sell it. I know. And I am not positive he was a crackhead, but I'm pretty sure. It has a good home now. I pay it the respect it deserves. I set it up and it plays fantastic. Had to make a new bone nut. Better I have it than someone else. I wonder What Thom would say about it. I tried to thank the turtle god, and acknowledge it's sacrifice but I dont know the proper wayto do that

    Im not bragging about it. I thought you guys would be interested in it. It is a fascinating piece. And I didn't kill it. Besides our government already supports crackheads. It was me or someone else to get it.

    The tuners date back to the 40's I think it was made before 1970 when the poor thing got recognised as endangered. I guess I should have kept it tp myself after all the guff I have been getting here.

    There is a reason the internet is full of "I like turtles". Who can resist their appeal?

    Cool tortoise. I have been keeping tortoises and turtles (box) my whole life. I love them. At first I said no, then tried to date it then I thought it was ok It is over 60 years old at least.

    That is a box turtle, perhaps mis-named as it is a land tortoise. If you truly love them, you'd never have bought that monstrosity.

    I do not believe in the religious concept of Karma, yet that instrument is pure bad Karma. Crackhead? Really? Congrats on funding those that steal.

    Want to make amends? I imagine you do not. Donate to science and donate the $80 (or more) to a sea turtle rescue operation.

    I will donate $1000 to sea turtle rescue and give the thing to a museum.
    Good Idea. And leave this site
    Everyone hates me now.
