I can only imagine that it's the result of irreconcilable differences ... although what those differences might be I have no idea. Maybe Poldi got sick of listening to BiBi nag him about the time he spent watching the football. Maybe BiBi decided it was time to stop turning a blind eye whenever Poldi started getting fresh with that young strumpet of a turtle in the next enclosure. Whatever the reason, though, it seems they've decided to go their separate ways.
It really makes you think, though, doesn't it. What is the sanctity of marriage coming to when a union of over a century can be tossed aside so casually? Or maybe not so casually. According to the article BiBi did attack Poldi, biting off a chunk of his shell. Domestic violence ... never a good sign. You get out of there, Poldi. Sure, she may say she won't do it again, but domestic violence is never just a one time thing.
But violence among turtle couples is well documented. Don't believe me? Check out the video below.
See, told you so.
