He chases turtles all day



Sure… he could lose a finger, but any adventurous job worth mentioning should risk at least one finger a week. Meanwhile, you’re a slave to the 9-5 work week. Turtleman makes his own rules and schedule. Not to mention he practically gets paid to dive into ponds and his idea of a dress code is cargo shorts. You can’t beat that.




He has his own battle cry







His days usually involve playing with animals



He may be the Turtleman, but he catches raccoons, foxes, snakes and more. It’s often said that contact with animals can improve your health. That may or may not include rabid animals.




He saves money on toothpaste



So he’s missing a few front teeth, but who cares? Everyone knows those teeth are only for show anyway. Besides, he makes the best candy corn face ever.
