Alligator Snapping Turtle Addicted to Smoking

A chef surnamed Tang who works at a villa in Changchun, the capital of northeast China's Jilin province, recently showed his turtle that is addicted to tobacco, Liaoning-based City Evening News reports.

According to Tang, the pet, an alligator snapping turtle, could smoke more than 10 cigarettes a day, and it may become upset and uneasy if failing to smoke that number.

Tang said the turtle learnt to smoke inadvertently last month when a chicken bone pricked into animal's belly. As Tang tried to pick it out, the turtle became very aggressive and tried to bite him. So he put the cigarette he was smoking into its mouth.

To his surprise, the turtle soon finished the remaining part of the cigarette.

Now the turtle crawls close to Tang whenever he smokes. And the two often share cigarettes.

As its addiction worsens, Tang hopes someone can give him tips on how to help his beloved pet quit smoking.
