De er monstre.

Du har rett. :(

Why? What is the difference in eating turtles or cows?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZoltanDamo

Turtles are endangered


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FanddenRidder

But the livestock is the main reason of extinction of a lot of other species.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rob396024

Turtles are smaller and have shells. that's the primary difference

Krokodiller eter skilpadder. De er dyr, ikke uhyrer.

Jeg har ikke regret

Jeg liker skilpadder.

In Denmark, and maybe in the other Scandinavian countries, Skilpadder are chocolate candies http://shop.toms.dk/Produkter-1.aspx?ProductID=PROD110 SO maybe this is the reason we have such a sentence !


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/olletho

turtles had a rather infectious ad campaign in Canada when I was a kid.

But most commonly made by Nestle so possibly also evil.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mrlimey

Not the turtles!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BonsaiBaobab

awful, awful people


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/coolcats4

I totally agree!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Caroline-G.

They might be the chocolate turtles...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ondtogviltonsket

Funny, how horrified the people can be about those who eat turtles, dogs, 'mice', snakes, etc. but they think it's extremely normal devour cows. In some places the people eat whales meat, what's the deal... ? To my mind is the same... !


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kosmocherry

And Koreans eat dogs and cats and no one ever gets after them


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/April623004

No one keeps a whale or cow as a pet so anthropomorphism doesnt apply to them, therefore its not considered taboo to eat them. It is considered taboo to eat a pet animal like the ones you mentioned. Hope that helps :)

Is there a difference between "turtle" and "tortoise" in Norwegian?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kosmocherry

No, for some reason even though they are different animals, they are both "skilpadde"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RabidCadaver

Tonight i dine on turtle soup


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NorskSpiller

They are candies you silly english speakers XD.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marie852846

Dude in Australia the candies are frogs


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Featherbreeze03

I know someone who ate chocolate-covered grasshoppers from Australia.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Caroline-G.

I've seen cockroches in the center of lollipops IN THE US!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeoffreyCa301149

De is sounding a lot like "di."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JoshMiller220305

Turtle is actually pretty tastey. Makes a good stew.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DhanuRadha5

Even I have eaten turtle meat once! * hi 5*


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/halvblods_prins

It's not strange when you watch "Babette's Feast" (Babettes gæstebud) - a danish movie where Babette cooks a turtle soup :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marie852846

Mock turtle soup...mmmm


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JEGamIkkeB

I ate frog...it tasted like chicken, or any other unseasoned meat...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Caroline-G.

My brother has a friend who ate ants and said the tasted "like little sausages". Ew, whatever.

Shredder elsker skilpadder-suppen


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fennecrev

Why is the translation for this "they eat shell -pads"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YeetoMcNeato04

I'm no Norwegian expert but I guess they named them shell-pads because they have shells...?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ctougas01

At the Galapagos islands? Yeah they did
