Sun’s out, bum’s out!
Closing out this year’s ITTW with a shellebration of turtle and tortoise diversity! Like humans, turtles and tortoises come in all shapes, sizes, and colors: Russian tortoises like me are round; pancake tortoises and softshell turtles are flat. 🟡 Galapagos tortoises are ginormous tanks and gray and brown all over; diamondback terrapins are the size of a salad plate and have white skin with beautiful black markings. 🤍🖤 Star tortoises have gorgeous radiating patterns all over their shells; spotted turtles have (you guessed it) spots all over theirs. 🕸🐆 Even the seven species of sea turtles range from the olive-gray 100-lb Kemp’s ridley to the massive, black leatherback that can weigh over 1,500 lb! 🌊
🌈 Turtles and tortoises stomp, dig, and swim with a whole rainbow of spectacular shells! To shellebrate, I made a new glass turtle friend with a rainbow shell! Mom found my new friend on her Great Smoky Mountains trip a few years ago, but kept her tucked away until now. I liberated my new rainbow friend to roam free, but our rainbow of wild cousins need your help to keep roaming our planet! Every little bit to help our environment helps keep us shells thriving for centuries to come! 🌎🐢
