Creature straight out of a history book washed up on Island beach...
10:45 a.m. - A giant sea turtle, said to weigh between 500 and 600 pounds, was discovered washed up ashore near the Conference House, Tottenville, earlier today.
there's no official story about it in the staten island advance (mostly because it has yet to sign on to the cast of "the sopranos") so i stole a couple of photos of it from the website.
it's pretty friggin' amazin' over there. catch a load of dis guy!
