Maryland has turned its mascot from a turtle into a terrifying monster
Testudo has been hitting the gym pretty hard over the offseason judging by the aggressive, muscled up version of the Maryland Terrapins mascot that was unveiled in the school's new football hype video over the weekend.
The new, scarier mascot seems to be more in line with the recently rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle film franchise than the friendlier Testudo of previous years.
The makeover must be working as the team is 2-0 with wins over James Madison and South Florida this season.
