  • turtles.

    My dad got us a bunch of turtles - - like 5 or 7 of them. They lived in a little pond that was fenced in.

    Somehow the turtles would get out; we would find them all around the yard. They always managed to get out.

    I discovered that they would get on top of one another and form a stack. The stack was high enough that they could then climb out over the fence.

    I remember wondering how the last one would get out using this technique, though.

    I never figured this out.
