But forgetting about work and remembering another great day at the zoo is so much more fun, lazy days where you just walk around and see amazing sights and animals you didn't even know existed share pens with ones you have known since childhood - a great life lesson, why can't we all just get along.

Turtles have good eyesight and an excellent sense of smell. Hearing and sense of touch are both good and even the shell contains nerve endings.
The shell of a turtle is made up of 60 different bones all connected together.
The bony portion of the shell is covered with plates (scutes) that are derivatives of skin and offer additional strength and protection.
Turtles range in size from the 4-inch Bog Turtle to the 1500-pound Leathery Turtle.
Turtles will live in almost any climate warm enough to allow them to complete their breeding cycle.
Turtles live on every continent except Antarctica.
