"Fossilized turtles have been caught having sex, the first known case of animals with backbones found copulating in the fossil record, researchers say," writes Charles Choi for LiveScience. "The mating turtles may have been caught in a death trap as they sank to deeper layers of the lake, where they were having sex nearly 50 million years ago, the researchers speculate.... Scientists made their discovery at the Messel Pit in Germany."
