These reptiles are fun creatures who carry their home and protection with them at all times. These shelled critters have the ability to hide their heads when attacked by any mean predator that attacks. But this speical feature doesn't come without it's draw backs because to carry around this defense system can make them slow. So slow in fact rabbits think they can always out run these guys. But one thing turtles can say that rabbits can't is that they've been in space. Which happened back in 1968 when two turtles were launched into orbit and came back after a week just fine.
