Profile of a Star Tortoise

By HazardousCity  
"And then the gleam is seen as the glint in a giant eye and it is eclipsed by the blink of an eyelid and the darkness moves a flipper and Great ATuin, star turtle, swims onward through the void." - Terry Pratchett [Moving Pictures]

Ok fine so this is a Star TORTOISE(Geochelone elegans) but still Chelonia is Chelonia!
