The Pet Turtle is a members-only pet that can be used both on land and underwater. It was first introduced on August 2, 2012, and it can be purchased from its adoption icons in Claws 'N Paws or Flippers 'N Fins. It was set for clearance in February 2017, but its adoption icons were not removed, allowing it to still be purchased.

Appearance

The pet turtle has a large, rounded head and a smaller shell for a body. It can be customized with various colors, eyes, and either legs or fins.

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 are the first pet to be 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 sleep when the player went idle for a short time, but that feature has since been removed.
  • 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.
  • After an update in 2017, the Pet Turtle could no longer be found in the Choose a Pet menu; however, it could still be purchased from its adoption icons.
  • Despite only tortoises having legs, you can still choose them when customising a turtle.
