Search for MH370 leads to discovery of new sea turtle species

The thus-far fruitless searth for that Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 has not been completely fruitless.

Scientists in Perth today announced the discovery of a species of sea turtle never known to science before. Dubbed the "Chelonioidea Pingnatius," the new species apparently uses electrolytes in sea-water to produce an electronic "pinging" sound.

While there has not been sufficient research for a credible conclusion, early indications are that this process is part of the mating ritual among this new species of sea turtle.
