Keith Interviews Jimmy, the Loggerhead Turtle
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     "Good morning boys and girls. I'm Keith Trace, host of Amazing Animals. Today, we've got a real treat for you. He is one of the wettest guests we've had here. He's left lots of sand all over the place here. His name is Jimmy, and he's a loggerhead turtle. Hello, Jimmy."
 
2     "Hi, Keith. Sorry about the sand."
 
3     "No problem, Jimmy. We have a vacuum cleaner."
 
4     "I took a walk along the beach. I've been leaving sand everywhere."
 
5     "A walk along the beach sounds nice."
 
6     "Not really, Keith. It was a lot of work."
 
7     "How so?"
 
8     "It's a long story. Being born as a loggerhead turtle is a lot of work. My mom swam hundreds of miles to lay eggs in the same spot where she was born. It was on a beach in Florida."
 
9     "Florida's nice. I hear the beaches there are very pretty."
 
10     "They are, Keith. But there are also lots of people there."
 
11     "Is that a problem?"
