Turtle Spirit Animal
Before we get everything rolling, I considered some you may be keen on finding out with regards to the contrast between a turtle, an ocean turtle, a reptile, and a turtle. While they are practically the same, there are some unmistakable contrasts.
To start, a few turtles and all ocean turtles invest the vast majority of their energy in the water. Truth be told, they just pass on it to lay their eggs ashore and at times to lounge in the sun. In this way, those types of turtles have webbed feet and their ocean turtle cousins have flippers. Reptiles, then again, and a few types of turtles invest more energy ashore. They live in more harsh, damp conditions. Turtles, then again, are not quite the same as their water-cherishing cousins in that they live absolutely ashore and don't have webbed feet.
This post will cover turtle, reptile, and ocean turtle imagery, and I'll compose a different post on the turtle soon.
