Faux is a French word meaning "fake". To produce a faux tortoise shell paint effect would be trying to paint an item or project that resembles tortoise shell. It can be done a number of ways with acrylic paint and blending of several earthy colors. Some websites use rubbing alcohol in their recipes. Typing in faux tortoise shell painting effects as a web search will bring up several good guides. Good luck!

Well, think of it as an egg shell, the shell is hard and water proof! And if a predator comes, all the tortoise has to do is retract into its shell, the predator can't get to it.

The shell of a tortoise is similar to the human rib cage. To be precise, the human rib cage has spaces between them which seperates 1 rib from the other. For a tortoise the ribs are merged together forming a conch aka shell. Hence if you ever tap hard on the shell of a tortoise a few times, you will see immediate movement in the form of the tortoise trying to run away from you. Hence if the shell of the Tortoise breaks it results in immediate death of the tortoise . Hence one should never try and remove the shell of the tortoise. Incase the shell cracks , immediately take your tortoise to a pet doc. Also bandage the crack like you would to a human wound. Ensure that the bandage is firm so as to hold the shell together.

Poor diet and lack of ultraviolet solar radiation can cause a tortoise shell to deform.

Unfortunately, it is a myth that turtles and tortoises can leave or change their shells. The shell is actually a hard, protective covering over the turtle or tortoise's ribs. So if you find an empty tortoise shell that means that that tortoise has died and decomposed.
