Fact of the Day
When a turtle breathes, all of its internal organs are pushed to the front and back of his body/shell in order to provide ample room for the lungs to expand [source]. Underwater, the turtles have developed a way to intake oxygen from the sea itself. A series of blood vessels around the inside of the rear-end absorb oxygen through diffusion and add it into the body.
Turtles spend 68% of their time breathing from their butts [source].
