Turtles get some help from FedEx

These turtles are no slowpokes.

They'll be moving at FedEx speed.

Two green sea turtles will be traveling from the Florida Keys to their new home at a Connecticut aquarium via Federal Express.

The turtles, named Righty and Lefty, are nearly four years old.

They were hatched as part of a research project on a turtle virus.

Experts say they aren't likely to survive in the ocean because they were nurtured by humans.

Righty and Lefty are expected to arrive at their new home at the Maritime Aquarium Friday.
