Divers Discover Endangered Sea Turtle Has Glowing Shell

This is a video of a critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle that divers just recently discovered have bio-fluorescent shells. They don't produce their own light (bio-luminescence), but rather reflect UV light as different colors (in this case red, yellow and green). Scientists believe this may help camouflage the turtles as they swim among reefs with lots of bio-luminescent animals at night. When reached for comment, Ninja Turtle Michelangelo was pissed his shell doesn't glow because, "That would be the tits at raves, bro." Then he nunchucked me in the ballsack and stole my pizza.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Oh Steve, who wishes he had glowing body parts. Meh, I don't really wish mine glowed as much as I wish they shot powerful burning lasers when I got naked.
