Big, small, squatty, long... all in all pretty funny looking. We've gotta say, we're thankful for turtles! We've put together all the cutest turtle photos we can find as a grand gesture of appreciation for these rad reptilians.

Why? Because turtles can breathe through their butts and pee from their mouths. Thanks for letting us know this important and world-shattering news, scientists!
This enormous (and yet, underweight) leatherback sea turtle got stranded in the right place at the right time. Rescued by IFAW and Mass. Audubon, rehabbed and released by the New England Aquarium, he's now on the move with a new lease on life. This could be only the third time in history for a successful leatherback sea turtle rescue and release! Here's how it went down:

They love each other and hate everything else. Probably not, but it's fun to personify animals!

Turtles and tortoises are perfect in every way, and yet the internet is still dominated by cats. I honestly shouldn't need to explain this to you guys, but here's why you should be giving turtles your attention instead.
Dogs and cats are great, but perhaps it's time to step up your waning esoteric nature and raise a 100lb tortoise. Imagine the looks on the faces of the dog park regulars. [Editor's note: Removing wild tortoises from their homes is cruel and illegal. However, in some states -- such as Arizona, Utah, California, and Nevada -- abandoned tortoises who have been bred in captivity are in need of loving homes]

Lonesome George became a symbol for the Galapagos Islands and environmental campaigners as the last of his species, but sadly the old timer passed away at the ripe old age of 100. This video, taken in 2009 shows George in his prime enjoying life on his island home.

This turtle looks like it's about to smack this girl.
Did you know that turtles are M. C. Hammer fans? 'Cause this guy totally is. Those are some impressive moves, turtle.
I mean, turtles are always thrilled to see you. But there's something special about this one. I'm trying to decide if it's the tremendous grin or the coy wave. Either way, pardon me while I melt.
How to Set Up a Turtle Cages - We first have to understand that a fish tank and a turtle cages are two different things. Fish needs only water to survive. This is why fish tanks are completely inundated with water. On the other hand, the turtles are amphibians. They need land as well as water. It is imperative to provide them with some kind of dry surface they can cling to, when they want to come to land. For fulfilling this prerogative, the turtle tanks are provided with a rock that is only half submerged in water. Moreover, even the tank should be only half filled by water. The rock can be substituted with worn driftwood or cork bark floats as well.
This turtle has an important message to share with you.
This is officially the cutest GIF of all time.
Tips for Raising Healthy Baby Turtles ( turtle cages ) - The turtle is very cute and appealing to people, as are many baby animals. Nevertheless, it is illegal to purchase a turtle throughout the United States of America. (See U.S. Food and Drug Administration Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, Subpart D, Sec. 1240.62--Turtles intrastate and interstate requirements) There are a few exceptions to this law however, for bona fide scientific, educational. The primary reason for this is because the hatchling turtle is deemed to be a greater risk for Salmonella compared to adult turtles. Turtle baby are most likely to be handled by children who do not necessarily practice good personal hygiene; therefore the turtles' care must be properly and strictly observed.
Locate A Snapping Turtle Nest ( Turtle Cages ) - Snapping Turtles are powerful, enduring and beautiful creatures that have been around for millions of years. Their evolution occurred earlier than most other turtles and their rugged design has not changed since. While the common snapping turtle has a wide distribution and strong numbers, in northern regions of the United States there can be as few as 1-5 snappers per hectacre. Numbers in the southern United States can be more promising and have as many as 65 snapping turtles per hectacre. The alligator snapping turtle, on the other hand, is considered threatened and is protected by law in many states. The snapping turtle in fact, can lay clutches of 20-50 eggs, but only about 133 of every 1,300 eggs survive to leave the nest. Out of those 133 hatchlings, just 1 will survive to adulthood
Ruining my childhood, one movie at a time, Michael Bay now has his hands on our favorite pizza-eating Ninja Turtles. And this time, he is going to make them aliens. Aliens.
Nemo the surfing turtle
They're tricksters, I tell you.Tricksters.
Cue nostalgia. With over 4,000 individual pictures, 60 hand drawn images, and 3 months of tedious work we recreated the 1987 TMNT cartoon introduction in stop motion.
I've been creating my own Ninja Turtle comics and this is my version of the characters.

Not sure which one it is...
"Nemo" the 8 year old tortoise who surfs, is featured in the film "Sebastian Beach One Fine Day". Nemo loves the water, and loves surfing for other sea turtles and bringing awareness to the sea turtles plight.
This tortoise won't tolerate cats eating on his patio. You've been warned, cats. You've totally been warned.
Tortoises may not be predisposed to swimming, but boy, can they surf. Also, try not to be jealous of Nemo the tortoise's lifestyle. Some day you'll be able to retire to the Florida seashore too, I'm sure.
In which six absurdly adorable baby tortoises chow down on lettuce. Just a head's up: when I finally retire I'm going to spend my days watching tortoises eat.
Ladies, don't leave your bras where tortoises can steal them.
Adrian Tsang just took feeding tortoises into the 21st century. This clever tortoise feeder is made from Lego and programmed with Robot C. Using a color sensor, the robot follows a black track until a tortoise activates a second touch-activated sensor to distribute tortoise pellets. The best part? The tortoises already have figured out how to work this thing.
The Chinese government HATES turtles. Are they soulless?
He seems grumpy.

I think this post makes one thing clear: the best mode of transportation is tortoise back. It's also way cheaper and greener than a taxi.
It just had to be done!
This young poet's affection for his favorite Ninja Turtle moved me to tears.
