Well, to be honest, I going to hypothesize it was someone amongst the large southeast Asian fishing community out there.

Maybe we can find someone that got a D in Marine biology to head up the cause

So far they're thinking:

Scientists don't know exactly how the Asian variety got to the Gulf Coast—the possibilities include breeding in the local waters or being carried to the area by currents.

They're tasty. Usually the ones used for curries in thai restaurants, for instance.

Turtle is supposed to be delicious. I'm not sure if it is all turtles in general or if it's just a particular species of Giant Tortoise though. When they were first discovered, they tried to take them home with them, but they were so delicious, none of them made it home. They ate the whole lot. They couldn't resist it. lol

That QI episode made me really curious to know what turtle tastes like. Of course the Giant Tortoise is protected so that is out of the question. I would certainly try that turtle soup anyway. :D

I'm generally not that daring when it comes to food, but if I was pushed to, I would probably give it a try. I'm kind of funny when it comes to seafood. I don't want to be though because seafood is generally good for you. I want to try and develop a taste for it. :/

In order to avoid every single possible negative unintended effect, you'd have to basically starve. Fuck that.

And I also saw those videos of how mean turtles are so I don't care how many turtles die.
