Would a turtle want an iPad on its back?
Three tortoises will be allowed to roam around with iPads mounted on their backs. But some people think this is not fair to the animals. What do you think?
The exhibit will be at a museum and is part of its grand opening.
The African Sulcata tortoises will roam on the roof deck garden. Each will have two iPads. They will show video of area ghost towns.
Folks who don't think tortoises should carry iPads want the exhibit stopped. The animals are not designed for it, they said.
The tortoises were rescued from a breeder. A vet is overseeing their care. Their diet includes leafy vegetables. The iPads are on mounts used to track to wild animals.
The tortoises will get new homes after the exhibit closes Oct. 5.
