New York’s John F. Kennedy airport experienced delays during July 2016, but officials said weather was not the problem. The delays were caused by nearly 400 diamondback terrapin turtles, which laid eggs and built nests in the area around the airport. Authorities say the turtle’s normal habitat is the nearby salt marshes, but they feel at home in the sand along the airport perimeter. Travelers often had to wait while the visiting turtles were rounded up and returned to a safer areas.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
