Myrtle the Turtle Enjoys St. Patrick's Day Meal

The 560-pound green sea turtle is a vegetarian for the most part

Myrtle, a 560-pound green sea turtle at the New England Aqaurium, enjoyed a St. Patrick's Day lunch on Tuesday. 

For the most part, the aquarium's biggest animal is a vegetarian.

She eats several heads of lettuce per day, but for this special meal, she enjoyed a variation of squid and cabbage, with sides of broccoli and her all-time favorite Brussels sprouts.
