Embrassing your true nature

During my last trip to Florida I visited Gatorland and while I was there I saw this and thought..Hmmm something about this pictures seems a little off, and then I remembered the fable of the Scorpion and the Turtle and  smiled and wondered.

A scorpion, being a very bad swimmer, asked a turtle to carry him on its back across a river. “Are you mad?” exclaimed the turtle. “You’ll sting me while I’m swimming and I’ll drown.” “My dear turtle,” exalted the scorpion, “If I was to sting you, you would drown and I’d go down with you. Now where is the logic in that?” “You’re right,” said the turtle. “Hop on.” The scorpion climbed aboard and halfway across the river gave the turtle a mighty sting. As they both sank to the bottom, the turtle asked, “Before I die, I must ask you something? You said there is no logic in your stinging me. Why did you do it?” “It has nothing to do with logic,” the drowning scorpion replied. “It’s just my nature.”

These images beg the question, Did the turtle change the odds of getting hurt by simply being on top this time?  I think probably not because, most creatures will remain consistent in their deeds, words and actions, based on their previous history – ultimately revealing their true nature.  🙂
