Poobles is probably the most frequently spotted of all the turtles (or so it seems), although we really need to keep track of the number of sightings to be sure. He also doesn’t seem to be very frightened of people, and usually won’t try to walk away or hide whenever visitors come close. Since he is fairly small for an adult male, and since he looks so much like Coquí, we think he probably hatched in the courtyard, but you’ll have to compare his microsatellites with the larger turtles to be sure. He might also have babies in the courtyard, so you can check him both on the first screen of choices (the offspring) and a possible dad. Of course, if you choose him as both an offspring and father at the same time, his microsatellites will match up perfectly, since you’d be comparing exact copies of the same DNA. Just remember that a turtle cannot be its own father, and you should be fine. Oh, and if you aren’t sure what microsatellites are, click here.
