Turtles are rad. They are the dinosaurs of the sea; the underwater grandpas that everyone adores. And like any great thing that society loves, turtles have their very own special day when the world comes together to celebrate their greatness.
In honor of World Turtle Day, here are all the reasons we really like turtles.
From their very first moments of life, they’re like, “What up. I’m a turtle, and I’m here to rock your world.”
As well as their leisurely modes of travel.
Turtles are exquisite
and accepting of everyone.
Although they’re not afraid to let you know if you’ve done something truly offensive.
feisty little creatures
Happy World Turtle Day!
