Virginia To Recognize Box Turtles

Jim Burroway

February 1st, 2009

This just in:

J. Chapman Petersen, Delegate from Virginia’s 37th District, has introduced State Senate Bill 1504 to designate the Eastern Box Turtle as the official state reptile of Virginia.

It’s about time Box Turtles got a little respect in Virginia. Now if only they’d see fit to recognize gay people.

I thought that the Virginia state reptile was any politician that held office in the state of Virginia………..

I need to get outside and go on a walk. I would like to see some turtles in the wild down here in South Carolina.

I think I dated a couple of the Virginia box turtles but thought they were actually Eastern Virginia gay box turtles….we may need some clarification of Eastern box turtle vs gay box turtle!!!!! hahahaha!
