It can be a bit zany, it can go under the name of a really famous US President, it can be a ninja and pizza lover. And, it’s also the inspiration for several Kama Sutra positions.

It’s strong yet fragile, solid yet sensitive. And always ever-so chic with its camouflage outfit. A real woman, commando-style!

It can definitely tell a story or ten, remember the many embraces it has seen, the countless sweet words overheard.
If only my turtle could talk…
