In the Real World
Turtles have webbed feet or flippers and protective shells.
In The Lion Guard
The turtles shown in The Lion Guard have yellowish green bodies and darker olive green shells with lighter spots. Their heads and tails are brown, and their claws are dark green.
Turtles are omnivorous animals, their diet depending on where they live. They are adapted for aquatic life. All turtles lay eggs. They dig nests for their young in the ground and lay their eggs before leaving.
After a storm, the Lion Guard helps out some turtles who had become stuck on their backs by flipping them back onto their feet.
Baby Baboon crosses a pond by leaping from one turtle's shell to another. They each lift their heads, then quickly recede as they notice Fuli, who also uses them to cross. The final turtle she springs on slides onto land, carrying her with it and leaving it stuck on its back. She flips it over and continues on her way.
Some turtles are seen singing Makin' Hippo Lanes.
Turtles can be seen on paintings in Rafiki's Tree.
