Why do we love #turtles and #tortoises? Let us count the ways! These #reptiles are prehistoric, having been around for over 200 million years. In that time they have evolved into a diverse, fascinating and #beautiful group of reptiles unlike any other. Turtles and tortoises come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They inhabit all kinds of incredible ecosystems from canyons to rainforests, coral reefs and the open ocean; you can even find them in your own backyard! They are the only animals that have a modified ribcage to form a build-in shell that makes up the majority of its body. We could keep on going, but you get the picture! #Turtles are amazing!

Update: There is now some resolution to this case: a Costa Rican court delivered guilty verdicts for four of seven defendants in the murder of Mora and the kidnapping and robbery of four foreign volunteers. The same defendants were acquitted in a previous trial last year, but the verdict was overturned on appeal.
