|Turtles Are Not Inside Their Shells, They Are Their Shells by Gistreal(m): Mon 13, June, 2022|
Did you know?
Turtles 🐢 are not “inside” their shells. They *are* their shells.
A tortoise/turtle shell contains nerves that connect to its central nervous system. So they can feel pain and pleasure when their shells are touched, stroked, knocked, dropped, or injured.
Contrary to what many people believe the shell is an inseparable part of their anatomy, forming part of its skeletal structure. The ribs and spine are fused inside the shell and contain nerves connected to the nervous system.
