A turtle's spine/backbone is attached internally to its shell - so to take off the shell is to rip the backbone out of the body and kill the turtle.
A turtle shell consists of two parts - the carapace (the upper convex shell) and the plastron (the lower concave shell) which are joined together by two connecting bone bridges.
The backbone is attached to the the carapace at the top, and to the ribs on the bottom sides.
As a result, most of the length of the turtle's backbone is fixed in place as one bone! with only the tail and neck retaining flexibility, so when Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo partied, they definitely tried to avoid dancing.
Turtles without a shell look like a big blob because under that big hard shell it is just mosh... so it just looks like a blob without a shell. I hope i answered Ur question well.
it has a shell and is slow and kinda wrinkly
A turtle is typically a reptile like creature with four legs and a shell. Picture:
Usually with a colorful shell on the bottom.
The turtleâ??s spine that runs through the entire body is attached to the shell. That would mean for the turtle to leave the shell, the spine would have to be torn out because itâ??s attached to the shell. Underneath the shell lays solid body of bones where the turtle body has very little movement.
it has a pig noes and a soft back
It is a slug without a shell.
they will look like a slug.
They sort of look like crawfish.
It means that the scutes are raised and look like pyramids, and the shell is bumpy and not smooth. For more information on how to take care of pyramiding on a pet turtle visit the link in 'related links'.
A land turtle is a tortoise. A turtle is a sea turtle. A fresh water turtle is a terrapin. Tortoises, unlike turtles and terrapins, have flat feet that barely look like individual feet, but instead look more like they are fully part of the leg, much like an elephant's. Tortoises have a very sloped shell, where as the other turtles have much more flattened shells.
its obvious that turtle eggs look like turtle eggs. They are little balls.
