Remains of an enormous turtle, which was the size of a Smart Car, have been unearthed in a Colombian coal mine.
The shell alone of the 60-million-year-old turtle, Carbonemys cofrinii, aka “coal turtle,” is large enough to be a small swimming pool. Its skull is roughly the size of a regulation NFL football.
