Turtles are interesting reptiles! Did you know turtles walk slow because instead of walking directly on their feet they walk on the sides of their feet? Turtles are different reptiles that have different qualities about them, like how they walk and eat. Turtles have a prefered diet. Some are carnivores and some just have a strict vegetarian diet. But no matter what, turtles are cute from tiny to big, skinny or fat, whether they are carnivores or vegetarian. Nothing can make you not unique because the way you were made was not on accident. You were made like that because that is what can make you a unique person!
Turtles have been around for 215 million years. Turtle are reptiles. They are cold blooded. They have a hard shell because it is their shield. Their shell is called a carapace. Most types of turtles (not all) can stick or hide their heads in their shell. The largest type of turtle is called the Leatherback Turtle. Leatherbacks can weigh up to 2000 lbs. One of the most important things about turtles is if you have one as your pet you have to keep it away from small objects that it can eat or get cut from. Also, if you didn’t know, turtles go into adulthood overnight.
In my opinion, a turtle is a great pet but you have to take good care of it. If you are going to have a turtle, follow all of the rules and research more about them. I also want you to take good care of it because it is a living thing and it is a sea animal. I hope you liked this information about turtles and hope you get one as a pet if so.
