Week-7 Animals

My favourite animal is a turtle and for these reasons…

Turtles are reptiles.Turtles have a hard shell that protects them like a shield, this upper shell is called a ‘carapace.

Turtles also have a lower shell called a ‘plastron’.Many turtle species (not all) can hide their heads inside their shells when attacked by predators.

Turtles have existed for around 215 million years.Like other reptiles, turtles are cold blooded.
