Trivia

  • Turtles are just one of only a few pets (such as Pet Polar Bears, Pet Hippos, and Pet Penguins) that can be used both on land and in water.
  • Turtles can be customized with flippers or legs, but they can still go underwater and on land with either choice. 
  • Turtles were the first pet able to go on Land and Water.
  • As with most amphibious pets, the land accessories cannot be used underwater and vice versa.
  • When they were first released, they would automatically go to sleep when the player went idle for a short time, but that feature has since been removed. It can, however, still occur in the Play-As-Your-Pet Party.
  • In the Pet Stop, the turtle can get a ninja mask and katanas, which may be a reference to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
  • The turtle's action when clicked (tucking into its shell and sliding) may be a reference to the Koopa Troopas from Super Mario Bros.
  • It was set for clearance in February 2017 and was removed from the Choose a Pet menu shortly afterwards, but its adoption icons were not removed until much later in 2017.
  • Its adoption icon in Claws 'N Paws was replaced with an Eggstravaganza pedestal.
