This baby turtle is hopping a ride on his Mama's back. Unlike Tortoises, which prefer to stay on land, turtles like the water. In this statue the core was made of resin, then electroplated in copper with a final verdigris touch. The color combination looks wonderful.
Did you know that although turtles are aquatic reptiles, they cannot breathe underwater in the same way fish can. Instead, turtles need to surface in order to take in oxygen while swimming. What's even more amazing is that many turtles need to surface every 30 minutes to breathe, some turtles are able to spend months underwater before coming up to breathe. Yes, months!
