This post is turtle-y unbelievable!

A little bit like the puffin post, I saw the photograph of a turtle skeleton (below) and it set me off on an investigation.

First, I did some research because I knew there had to have been something inside that shell when the turtle was alive.

When I was a little girl, I thought that turtle came out of their shells..... I also thought that slugs were snails without their shells!

This video is really interesting ..... all I will say is breathing and bottoms!!!!

Have you learned things that you didn't know before? Mrs Fenton certainly did.

Let's finish with a story.....

The Smallest Turtle by Lynley Dodd.

You may know this author as the creator of Hairy Maclary and friends - or Slinky Malinky if you are a cat person like Mrs Fisher and Mrs Flaherty.
