What's for dinner?

Most turtles eat plants and insects.

Steady, but not slow

Turtles have lived on Earth for 200 million years. All have one thing in common: the shell. It is made of 60 bones and protects the turtles from predators. The shell consists of two parts: a carapace covering the turtle's back, and a plastron covering its belly.
