Soft Toys Turtles - Turtles as Stuffed Animals

Turtle as a cuddly toy - plush turtle. At the beginning of the current millennium, turtle fossils were found in China. According to evaluation, these were already 220 million years old. However, the animals initially had to get along without a closed tank. Only the chest was protected. In the course of evolution, the turtle adapted more and more to the environment and is now known to be completely armored- in our case though these stuffed animals are super soft and perfect to cuddle. The pattern of the tanks is used for camouflage and is also shown very well and lifelike on the plush toys.

Discover cuddly turtles and sea turtles - one of the oldest species of animals on our planet

Turtles are among the oldest vertebrates on our planet, as land turtles are estimated to have existed for over 200 million years. Aquatic turtles, on the other hand, evolved from land turtles over 100 million years ago.

With their characteristic shell, made of bones and horn plates, they are well protected and therefore have few enemies that can harm them. This is because the head and legs of most of the fascinating tortoise reptiles are known to be able to retract into their shells. And in dry and hot areas, the shell also protects the animals from drying out.

Experts would probably note here that the egg-laying reptiles are differentiated into neck-turners and neck-snugglers, but with the plush animals we see this a little more loosely - especially since the turtle shell here is of course anything but hard, but velvety soft and perfect for cuddling and loving.

The real turtles lay their young in the form of eggs mostly in holes they have dug themselves and there they are incubated solely by the warmth of the sun and are left to their own devices from the moment they hatch, i.e. they are so-called nest fledglings.

Turtles are also well known because they can reach an impressive age. This varies from species to species, but giant turtles in particular can live to be over 200 years old and are among the oldest animals ever.

The velvety soft sea turtle plush toys from the Carl Dick Collection

Turtle cuddly soft toy stuffed animalSea turtles normally always stay in the water- only to lay their eggs, the females come ashore. Fascinatingly, they usually come to the very beach where they hatched - no matter how many thousands of kilometers they have to travel to do so. You have to be able to orient yourself that well!
It is assumed that they also find their way on the basis of the earth's magnetic field. The sweet turtle babies are then hatched by the sun and crawl into the sea immediately after hatching.

And, of course, they are gifted divers who, with their legs turned into flippers complete with webbed feet and their streamlined shell, can become quite fast underwater. They can reach considerable depths and manage for a long time without oxygen.

As a lovingly and detailed manufactured plush toy, the great sea turtle from Carl Dick is particularly cute and popular in the assortment of Plueschtier.de.
