Some turtles make great pets, but others do not. So how can people tell the difference? Through accessible text paired with colorful photographs, this book allows beginning readers to explore the world of turtles, taking a close look at the physical attributes that make these slow-moving creatures unique. From their hard shells, called carapaces, to their different kinds of feet, turtles are as varied in physical makeup as they are in temperament. Young readers will learn that while a box turtle is a pet-friendly choice, they'll want to stay far away from the sharp bite of an alligator snapping turtle!
