“Try to be

like the turtle –

at ease

in your own shell.”

— Bill Copeland

Do not let fear confine your life inside a shell of doubt. A turtle never moves forward until is head is sticking out.” — Charles Ghigna

Squirtle ~ An African Sideneck Turtle, Squirtle views the world through the glass walls of her watery aquarium home. With necks that are longer than most turtles, Sidenecks can’t completely hide their heads in their shells. Instead, as its name infers, it tucks its head under the edge of its shell after drawing its head to the side. Thanks to a face often described as adorable and smiling, African Sidenecks such as Squirtle are popular pets.
