This Yellow bellied slider needed all of its cunning when it found itself all at sea in the choppy Solent last week.<br />
<br />
The freshwater turtle can't survive in sea water and desperately managed to attract the attention of some passers by who rescued him from the soup.<br />
<br />
Named 'Salty' the sea tossed turtle is now recovering in the calmer waters of the Blue Reef Aquarium in Portsmouth where manager Lindsay Holloway expects him to make a full recovery 'he's a very lucky turtle, he wouldnt have survived the cold saline sea waters for more than an hour'.
