    I recent learned (Wikipedia) that brussels sprouts, brocolli, cauliflower, kale, and collard greens are all the same species.

    Will these turtle farts power our green future? Only time… will tell!

    Truly, this is a wonderful thing. The easy thing to do would have been to say “Hey, remember that time that the turtle farts set off the alarms? Probs the brussel sprouts. They’re BANNED.”

    “what is the average underwater velocity of a sprouts-powered sea turtle”

    Is that an African or a European sea turtle?

    It’s not that simple. From actually RTFA:

    “Sprouts are really healthy for green turtles.

    The high levels of calcium in them are great for their shells, the fibre is good for their digestion and they also contain lots of beneficial Vitamin C, sulphur and potassium.”

    So if (like any good zookeeper) they care about the turtle’s well being, they’ll feed it sprouts and deal with the aftermath.

    Besides – “turtle farts” is just an *incredible* way to get kids interested in going to the zoo.
