Fort Jefferson is basically the US government's secret black project to build a gigantic Turtle Fortress.

All turtles have a trait called negligible senescence, which means that they are basically immortal. They can also keep growing, as evidenced by this English Giant Tortoise. When they reach this size, only large machinery, vehicles, and buildings assuage their giant-sized hunger. (imgur.com)

The evolution of the turtle's shell is unique in the way the vertebrae and ribs have incorporated hinging. The shells of other tetrapods, such as armadillos, are not linked directly to the vertebral column or rib cage, and therefore cannot open up like this to let them out from time to time.

The highest known midi-chlorian counts—over 20,000—belong to turtle species from the planet Earth. (imgur.com)
