We have all cracked the "As slow as a turtle" joke at some point or the other, but there is more to them than just speed, err … or lack of it. Here are some funny yet adorable pictures of turtles with some interesting captions.
Words of Wisdom
Master Oogway, a turtle in the hit movie Kung Fu Panda, said, “One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it.” There sure is some truth in it, no?
Turtles have been on this Earth for over 200 million years, and can survive both in water and on land. They adapt well to their surrounding and are considered to be highly intelligent animals. They provide us with food, medicine, and cosmetics, and make for very lovable pets.
For a long time, all we had is one defining judgment towards turtles―that they were slow little creatures. But these underrated animals have more to them than what meets the eye. They are considered to be very symbolic in many cultures. They are thought to represent determination and perseverance, and contrary to common belief, despite their slow nature, they work hard and travel long distances during the migration period. They are models of innocence and wisdom; Master Oogway in the Kung Fu Panda movie has shown us that! They are also considered to portray creativity, stability, and protection. And like the old saying goes, “Slow and steady wins the race.” So these little guys and gals are here to give you a good time, and show you that they can be humorous and carefree creatures.
Let’s have a look at the energetic lot!
Now that you have gotten a glimpse into the fun little world (shells) of turtles, you might probably rethink the clichés and get one of your own adorable green goblins in a shell!
