Robot Turtle Spies From Russia

Research by neurologist Professor Aleksey Burikov at Rostov State University in southern Russia has produced turtles which carry cameras or sensors on their shells and can be remotely operated for covert missions.

Turtles turn out to be excellent agents for spy agencies because they can go for very long times without food and can carry many times their own weight.

"Pigeons turned out to be poor learners and rats needed too much food," said Professor Aleksey Burikov.

The turtles are not trained with rewards but are directed remotely with electrical signals.
