A turtle’s shell acts like their rib cage, so you can’t remove it from their body. But if you could, what would you find when you peeked inside?
Turtles are one of the only land animals on the planet with their hips and legs located inside their rib cage, or shell. They are also one of the only animals that can breathe through their butts.
One fan exclaimed: “Turtles like to ride on alligators to show who is boss. An amazing animal with many surprises to discover. We can be happy to have them on our planet.”
