They may not be as cuddly and fluffy as cats, dogs, or hamsters, but turtles sure are super adorable. A turtle or tortoise can make for the perfect pet, as they are known to live at least a few decades and don’t require much attention. They are quiet, shy, and harmless animals. They can also be pretty friendly when kept in a good, comfortable environment.
We have collected some precious photos of cute, funny, and goofy turtles and tortoises for you today. Let us know which ones you found the most endearing.
