Turtles Delay Flights at JFK

It seems Diamondback terrapins are very common to Jamaica Bay which borders JFK airport.

And it seems that this time of the year, every year, some of those terrapins make their way onto the runways at this New York City airport.

This year, though, the 'invasion' was so large that they actually contributed to delays of up to 1 1/2 hours.

Can you imagine being a passenger anxious to get somewhere and finding out your flight is being delayed by turtles???
