Okay, followers of my blog will know that I’m often battling stereotypes of Giacomo Casanova as a ladykiller, get-’em-into-bed, notch-in-the-bedpost kind of lover. He liked women with brains, he liked the seduction, he liked to get to know women and not only rack up high numbers of conquests.
But the stereotypes die slowly. In fact, I came across this article about a creature dubbed the “Casanova turtle” because he sired so many babies that he helped bring the Galapagos turtle population back from near-extinction. You can read about him here or also here, which also has a video.
And by the way, the turtle’s name is not Casanova. It’s Diego. And now he gets to retire.
