Fun fact for those who don't know! Ginsu is named after the Ginsu knives, made popular from the 1980s infomercials due to how sharp they were, similar to how a sawfish's rostrum (the "saw") is sharp!

How did "green sea turtles" get that name? It's not because of their green shells or skin—their body fat is green from their plant-based diet! Green sea turtle Nickel is a great advocate for her endangered counterparts in the wild. See her in Caribbean Reef! 🐢
