It takes all sorts, as they say...
When you go to choose your next pet, and you think "ooh, a baby turtle, that's super cute, let me get one of them", then we urge you to think about the picture you are about to see first.
It shows a man in Japan just casually strolling down the road, taking his pet for a walk, which we are fairly sure was not moving at a quick pace. The picture was captured by @hi_roshishi on Twitter, who asked the man (and possibly the animal) if they would mind having their picture taken.

Remember folks, a turtle is for life, not just for Christmas. And also remember that they go through this whole ninja phase in their teens when they won't eat anything but pizza, it's a real nightmare.
