The bony portion of the shell is covered with plates (scutes) that are derivatives of skin and offer additional strength and protection.

Most land tortoises have high domed carapaces that offer protection from the snapping jaws of terrestrial predators. Aquatic turtles tend to have flatter more aerodynamically shaped shells. An exception to the dome-shaped tortoise shell is the Pancake Tortoise of East Africa that will wedge itself between narrow rocks when threatened and then inflates itself with air making extraction nearly impossible.

"Happy Together" is my favorite song by "The Turtles" :P

 

Imagine me and you, I do

I think about you day and night, it's only right

To think about the girl you love, and hold her tight

So happy together

 

If I should call you up, invest a dime

And you say you belong to me, and ease my mind

Imagine how the world could be, so very fine

So happy together

 

(Chorus)

I can't see me loving nobody but you

For all my life

When you're with me

Baby the skies'll be blue

For all my life

 

Me and you, and you and me

No matter how they tossed the dice, it had to be

The only one for me is you, and you for me

So happy together

 

Chorus

 

Me and you, and you and me

No matter how they tossed the dice, it had to be

The only one for me is you, and you for me

So happy together

 

Ba ba ba ba, ba ba-ba-ba ba ba ba... (as chorus)

 

Me and you, and you and me

No matter how they tossed the dice, it had to be

The only one for me is you, and you for me

So happy together

 

O-o-o-oh

So happy together

O-o-o-oh

How is the weather

Ba, ba ba ba ba

So happy together

Ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba

We're happy together

Ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba

So happy together

Ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba

Most turtle species have five toes on each limb with a few exceptions including the American Box Turtle of the carolina species that only has four toes, and in some cases, only three.

Turtles have good eyesight and an excellent sense of smell. Hearing and sense of touch are both good and even the shell contains nerve endings.

Some aquatic turtles can absorb oxygen through the skin on their neck and cloacal areas allowing them to remain submerged underwater for extended periods of time and enabling them to hibernate underwater.

Years later, in the same lake as the one she had caught that monster, I went fishing again! A buddy and I carried a flat bottom boat out and fished for a few days, had us a few beer with us and such!

 

On the second day, we drifted with the wind, drinking beer. Since the fish were scarce, we were just laying back relaxing and shooting the breeze. After awhile of sitting on "bottom" near shore, the boat started moving suddenly! I looked over one side...turtle. I looked over the other side...more of the same turtle!!! That was one BIG turtle!

 

It picked up the boat and moved us until it got into deep enough water...and then swam off! You fishermen know how wide a 14' Lowes flatbottom is...
