Meet Elena, the first reptile to see the dentist. A month ago, the turtle arrived at the Marathon, Florida turtle hospital with a fractured shell. All it took were some dental ingredients, like denture repair adhesive and two metal orthopedic plates, to mend her shell back together. It'll take some time for Elena to fully recover, but doctors are optimistic she can one day be released back into the ocean.
In an effort to break his teenage daughter's habit of wearing inappropriately short shorts, a Utah father went to "short lengths" to get her to dress more modestly. Just before taking his family out to dinner, he made some shorts of his own. Photos taken at the restaurant went viral. In a blog, the dad says he doesn't think his "modest is hottest" lesson made the statement he intended; but at least she knows her dad loves her and cares enough to make a fool out of himself.
