Turtles are very unique reptiles, and it is not just because of their physical appearance nor because they have been around for more than 100 million years! The pace in which they move, the shell that protects them from predators, are only some of the unique characteristics that set them apart from other animals. It is no wonder that turtles are often chosen as main characters for children’s fables and super heroes lead by Master Splinter.
