A man apparently tried to smuggle his pet turtle on a China Southern Airlines flight by disguising it as a hamburger. Airport screeners noted the legs protruding from the bun. “There’s no turtle in there, just a hamburger,” the man reportedly insisted. “There’s nothing special to see inside.” (South China Morning Post)
The image above is not the pet turtle but rather a real fake turtle burger. Recipe available here.
