Did I read somewhere that someone got bit by a turtle while snorkling?

I did in Feb, 2007. It was a loggerhead and I never did figure out why. My brother and others actually watched it. There may have been too many snorkelers around the area.

I got a large bruise on my hipbone and a decent story to tell.

We've had a couple of incidents lately just bruised but a big bad bruise. Its one in-particular turtle with an attitude. I don't understand why.

maybe they are just tired of being harrased, just like all of the other critters around here?

Maybe someone was trying to feed them marshmellows with their mouth.
