It's like the old saying: never come between a turtle and his ball.

Here's what I want you to do: grab a pencil and quickly jot down in the spaces below the first three things that pop into your mind when you hear the word "turtle." Don't think, just write! Go!

1. ________________________________________
2. ________________________________________
3. ________________________________________

I'll bet you anything that the three things you wrote were: 1) Slow, 2) Hard, protective shell, and 3) Psychotically possessive of their toys. Am I right? Of course I am! It's the only three things that anybody knows about turtles.
