Obama and His Turtle Spark Scandal Print E-mail

President Barry Obama has a photo that depicts him standing next to his mother and a dead Hawksbill sea turtle that was plastered on his wall. However, the so-called turtle collectible is actually an endangered species. The photo shows Obama wearing his famous 'mom jeans' as well.

The Daily Caller reports that, "A circulating photograph of a young President Barack Obama and his mother appears to feature a dead endangered species that Obama vowed to protect in a presidential proclamation less than two weeks ago."

Obama publicly proclaimed his support for Hawksbill sea turtles just two weeks ago and said he would do whatever it takes to aid their survival as an endangered species.

According to the Daily Caller, "After a historical photo aggregator recently tweeted a photo of Obama and mother Ann Dunham, believed to have been taken at their Hawaii home in 1975. The picture earned some sideways glances for the turtle hanging on the wall behind a bed in the room where the photo was taken."

Ironically in some East Asian countries, a depiction of a turtle has homosexual connotations.
